London: Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed he snubbed interest from Tottenham to join Los Angeles Galaxy because he couldn't stand the thought of playing against his old club.
Gerrard knew he was coming towards the end of his Liverpool career last season and several top teams including Tottenham expressed interest in signing him.
But the ex-England midfielder was determined to avoid playing against Liverpool, the team he supported as a boy and the only professional club he had played for in his entire career.
Instead, Gerrard opted to leave the Premier League and head to Los Angeles, having also turned down big money from Qatar plus approaches from French, Spanish and Turkish sides.
