Liverpool fans around the world have revealed their emotional state after watching a teary Steven Gerrard explain his decision to leave the club this summer.
Speaking to the club’s official TV channel, LFC TV, tears filled Gerrard’s eyes as he explained his decision and what it meant to leave Liverpool behind.
At one point in the interview Gerrard admitted, “I’m going here”, as he battled through to
confirm he will be swapping Merseyside for America later this year.
Gerrard also had words of praise for current manager Brendan Rodgers, having worked under five different managers during his 16 years at the club.

Steven Gerrard thinks it was a privilege to captain Liverpool for us. NOPE the privilege was that we got to see you play for us.

Emotion in Gerrard's interview towards end is incredible. Etched in face + voice. Great display of what #LFC means. Huge value in free view.

No matter how reluctant we are, and all that sadness, it'll be nothing compared to what the man himself is feeling.
