Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is happy Frank Lampard stayed with Chelsea. A move to LA Galaxy was considered by the Blues legend, which would've put an end to his England career.

Gerrard said: "He was too good for LA Galaxy, in my opinion. Of course, he made the right choice [to stay at Chelsea]. You've seen his form for Chelsea at the back end of last season.

"For me, he still has a lot to offer in the Premier League - and certainly for England - so it would have been sad if he had moved away. He's a great player. A lot of people talk about me and Frank being in the same team and we enjoy playing together."
