Steven Gerrard might not actually become an LA Galaxy player until July, but he’s already getting welcomed by the city’s finest.

Galaxy have released a video of Kobe Bryant welcoming Gerrard to LA, with the Lakers star hoping the Liverpool captain will help them secure another Championship.

Bryant says he’s been a fan of Gerrard for a long time, and admires his “versatility and aggressiveness and leadership.”

He then tells Gerrard to “kick some ass, and I’ll be down there rooting you on.”
