LA Galaxy make “embarrasing” spelling fail on Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard’s jersey for San Jose clash.

LA Galaxy were left red faced on Saturday after failing to spell Steven Gerrard‘s name correctly on his No.8 shirt correctly against San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.

Despite the kit man’s shocker with the Liverpool legend’s No.8 shirt ahead of the match, Gerrard would go on to assist former Tottenham attacker Giovanni Dos Santos for the opening goal of the game with 69 minutes gone – his fifth of the season.

It wasn’t enough for the Galaxy though, who went ten men down after former Chelsea and Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole was sent off in injury time, as their opponents on the night, as San Jose found an equaliser on the 90-minute mark.


Football has come a long way in the US since the arrival of another England and Premier League icon, David Beckham, joined Galaxy in 2007 but mishaps like this have riled fans.

The club’s official Twitter account were quick to make light of the error, tweeting a screenshot with the caption “Close enough. #Rad”.

But fans of Major League Soccer were not amused by the mistake, with a number of frustrated onlookers calling it an “embarrassing” show of incompetence.

Gerrard took six shots at goal against San Jose, registering four on target.

Gerrard has now created 17 chances in 11 games with the Californian side, who have been without star striker Robbie Keane who has been with the Republic of Ireland squad during the Euro 2016 tournament in France.
