Steven Gerrard would have struggled to walk down the street in his hometown of Liverpool without getting mobbed by fans - but the opposite appears to be true in his new place of work.

The former Liverpool captain made his LA Galaxy debut over the weekend amid plenty of hype from his club, but it seems as if the good people of Los Angeles are not touched by his celebrity.

"It has been nice for the first time to take the kids to a fairground on Santa Monica pier," Gerrard said last week. "It is something I've never been able to do in England. 

"It's good that not many people notice me out here because away from training and the games it is nice to go and spend some quality time with your family as well. That has been a surprise for me."

If this Sky Sports video is anything to go by, Gerrard will get used to being a nobody in his new home town as the sport America struggles to embrace continues to pass many of their natives by.
