Galaxy Boss Rescheduled Flights so Steven Gerrard Can Watch League Cup Final

Think of Liverpool, and you'll likely think of Steven Gerrard.

The 35-year-old is synonymous with the Reds, and the idea of the Anfield legend missing his boyhood club's League Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday is unfathomable.

And it seems his new boss at Los Angeles Galaxy, Bruce Arena, agrees with that sentiment, per Jack Bezants of the Daily Mail.

Gerrard, who left Liverpool for the Major League Soccer side last summer, is in the midst of a CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final tie against Mexican outfit Santos Laguna. It seems he was at risk of missing the Wembley showpiece due to the Galaxy's flight schedule ahead of Wednesday's second leg.

But Arena came to his rescue.

"When I told Bruce the kick-off time, he pushed training and our flight to Mexico back an hour on Sunday to ensure I didn't miss it," Gerrard said, per Bezants.

The boss will be hoping his English midfielder can repay his generosity by providing the spark in Torreon after the two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg on Thursday.
