Exclusive: Bruce Arena on Steven Gerrard’s LA Galaxy Role

STUB HUB CENTER, LOS ANGELES—Steven Gerrard was officially unveiled as a LA Galaxy player on Tuesday, taking part in training with his new teammates and meeting the media at his unveiling press conference.

The 35-year-old midfielder joins the current MLS champions after 17 years at his boyhood club, Liverpool.

"I love Liverpool Football Club and I always will do, I'm still a fan to this day but I needed a fresh challenge," said Galaxy's new No. 8.

"I'm a proud scouser," declared Gerrard as he fielded questions on how he's settling in to life in Los Angeles, the adaptation after being at one club for his whole career, and the influence of both David Beckham and Robbie Keane on his decision to move to California.

Gerrard admitted his biggest difficulty so far had been the jet lag he suffered in his first three days on the west coast of America, while the only advice Keane had given him was to pack the factor 50 sunscreen.
