40 Things About Steven Gerrard P2-1

Updated: Jun 11, 2020

A born Kopite, Gerrard originally started playing for his hometown team, the Whiston Juniors; there, he was spotted by Liverpool scouts and joined Liverpool Academy at the age of nine.

After failing to achieve much success in his early days, Gerrard began looking at other clubs and had tryouts for few different teams; this included a trial with Manchester United at the age of 13.

Gerrard mentioned in an interview that the red devils tried to sign him on a seven-year-deal, but he later clarified that the move was just a plot to pressurize Liverpool into offering him a professional contract. He eventually signed his first professional contract with Liverpool in 1997.
