Steven Gerrard is going to miss you.


In a farewell letter issued the same day that the LA Galaxy announced Gerrard would not be returning to the club next year, the Englishman espoused his appreciation and gratitude for getting the opportunity to play in MLS over the last year-and-a-half.


“I have loved every minute of my time in the States and playing for the LA Galaxy,” he wrote. “I am excited to see this league and this great club continue to grow.”

Gerrard also included parts of the letter in an Instagram post, which he ended: “I am now looking forward to spending time with my family as I consider the next stage of my career.”
