Footballer Steven Gerrard has said he is enjoying his "Z-list" celebrity status in America after moving to LA Galaxy.

The former England and Liverpool captain said his new life in the US was "mind-blowing" and he can now walk down the street "without being stopped every five minutes".

Gerrard (35) left Merseyside this summer after 17 years with the Reds - who he famously led to Champions League glory in 2005 - in order to play in America's Major Soccer League.

He told Hello! magazine: "I couldn't be happier right now. I love it. We're very lucky, I know that. I grew up on a council estate and will always remain grounded and humble. But this is mind-blowing."
