Steven Gerrard strikes a pose with LA Galaxy jersey in front of Hollywood sign [PICTURE]

LA Galaxy official twitter account posted a first official picture of the 35-year-old posing with his famed No 8 shirt, accompanied by the caption: 'Welcome to Los Angeles, Steven Gerrard! #GR8NESS'.

He joined LA Galaxy from Liverpool at the end of last season after spending all his career at Anfield.
The midfielder is set to be presented to his new club's fans during half-time of Saturday's match against Toronto.

He is expected to play his first game for his new club on July 17 at home to San Jose Earthquakes.

Speaking to Galaxy TV, the former England captain said: 'I had some nice opportunities around Europe,' he told Galaxy TV.

'But I wanted a completely fresh challenge, to come out of my comfort zone, live away from home and get a different life experience and choose a place where my family can enjoy themselves and settle.

'When I retire from football in a few years time I want to say I did try something different and didn't stay in the same place - although I loved every minute of it.'
