by Steven Gerrard
If instead of running a soccer club you have always dreamed about playing for one, you may enjoy reading the autobiographical book written by Steven Gerrard. The world-famous soccer player who was once the captain of both Liverpool and England National Team decided to share his memories with the fans.
A book titled My Story tells about all the highs and lows Gerrard had gone through during almost 20 years of his professional career. There are not many professional players who remain loyal to only one club for a few decades. Gerrard, however, did exactly that―he played for Liverpool from 1998 to 2015.
The book is autobiographical and was written by the player himself. Steven Gerrard shares every significant moment of his playing career with the readers and describes all the milestones he had reached while being a part of the Liverpool soccer team.
