New Delhi: Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard can always return to his boyhood club in Merseyside, said club's chief executive officer Ian Ayre.
The club captain will leave Anfield at the end of current season and will play in Major League Soccer (MLS) in America. He will turn up for Los Angeles Galaxy.
Ayre, talking to Liverpool radio station CityTalk, said that "The fact that he's leaving at the end of the season doesn't mean it's the last we'll see of him at Liverpool."
About the possible return on loan, he emphasised, "It's conceivable. It happens a lot in MLS, and it's something we talked to Steven and his representatives about."
The CEO mentioned that a player who has spent more than 25 years with the club can't just go away. He also re-emphasised the fact that midfielder is part of the Liverpool family, with its DNA in him.
"You can't have someone who has so much of the club's DNA in them and just expect that it will go away,"Ayre claimed.
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard returned to England on loan from America and is having a brilliant outing with Manchester City.
