Steven Gerrard said it was a “great feeling” to make his LA Galaxy debut in the 2-1 friendly victory over Club America but admits it will take a while before his new fans get to see the best of him after a two-month break.
Gerrard was named in the Galaxy starting line-up for the opening match of the International Champions Cup clash against the Mexican outfit and played the first 45 minutes before being one of a raft of changes made by the MLS side at the interval.
It was Gerrard’s first outing since bidding farewell to Liverpool in their 6-1 defeat to Stoke on the final day of the Barclays Premier League season on May 24, and he enjoyed the run out.
He also admitted, though, that he found it tough physically and pledged to get “better and better” the longer he spends with his new club.
Gerrard said on www.lagalaxy.com: “It was a great feeling. It was a difficult game and Club America were very good. After 15 or 20 minutes that the team settled really well, we played some good football and we got our deserved equaliser.”
