Soccer community pays tribute to Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard officially announced that he is leaving Liverpool at the end of the season via a statement to the public. In that statement, Gerrard said, “This has been the toughest decision of my life and one which both me and my family have agonised over for a good deal of time.”

“I’m going to carry on playing and although I can’t confirm at this stage where that will be, I can say it will be somewhere that means I won’t be playing for a competing club and will not therefore be lining up against Liverpool – that is something I could never contemplate.”

Tributes started filing in from Twitter and elsewhere from some of the greats in the soccer community.
