Steven Gerrard’s ruinous business away from football

Steven Gerrard returned to the Premier League to take over the reins of Aston Villa from the manager's position. A job with which he is not misgui


Steven Gerrard returned to the Premier League to take over the reins of Aston Villa from the manager’s position. A job with which he is not misguided, with 10 wins, 11 losses and three draws to his credit, and with the team in eleventh position.

However, not everything seems to be going well for the former Liverpool midfielder, and in the business world it is another story. The Englishman decided to invest, just as some stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, and other former players have done, but in his case they haven’t turned out all that well, as ‘The Sun’ has reported exclusively.

Gerrard decided to become an investor in Angel Revive, a brand that sells natural alkaline water from a spring in rural Lancashire for £20 a box. A product for which he injected about 2.5 million pounds sterling, which would be almost 3 million euros in exchange, to take a 25% stake in the business, which is run by one of the former player’s friends.

After even becoming the brand’s ambassador in 2019, things are not going the best way, and despite the fact that he agreed to lend Angel Revive the amount of 371,524 pounds (433,404 euros), the entity did not stop losing money, reaching a debt of 788,483 pounds (almost one million euros). This has caused the company to make the decision to suspend orders after running out of stock.

A drink with “medicinal benefits”

From Angel Revive they bet on alkaline water, which they say regulates the pH levels in the body and helps “prevent/reduce acid levels”. Moreover, they claim that “the health benefits of drinking alkaline water are based on recognized scientific data”, while Dr. Carol Cooper has confessed to the British tabloid that “the scientific jury is out” on this issue.
