Perhaps the Galaxy are disinclined to repeat the public relations debacle that ensued over the aborted start of Frank Lampard’s MLS career at NYCFC or perhaps they genuinely don’t know, but the club hasn’t said precisely when Liverpool veteran Steven Gerrard could make his first appearance for the club.
However, club spokesman Brendan Hannan said this week via email that Gerrard — currently on vacation in Portugal — officially becomes available when the MLS summer trade window opens Wednesday, July 8
“He should arrive in late June/early July to begin training,” Hannan said. “We have (home) matches July 11 against Club America and July 17 against San Jose Earthquakes which should serve as his arrival matches.”
