Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard says he would be halfway between Ferguson and Wenger if he wants to manage after his playing days. The player have received a standing ovation from Anfield fans and club after his 17 years service to the club.
The 34-year old star will move to MLS outfit La Galaxy this summer and is hoping for a role at the club after his playing days at La Galaxy. The player could not get the desired result in his last game at Anfield as Liverpool fumbled to a 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace.
The player already has thoughts to his life after his playing days as he said, “I must be a bit bonkers to want to be a manager but I certainly want to keep the connection with the club and leave everything open for the future.”
“I wouldn’t mind being either Fergie or Wenger because both have been very successful managers. I think I’ll be somewhere in the middle.
“What I have tried to do with managers I have worked with down the years is to write notes on them all. I’ve kept an eye on the sessions the players have liked and always tried to remember the one-liners or bits of advice, whether good or bad.
“It’s not a big suitcase full of notebooks but there’s some important stuff that might help me in the future.”
The player says he would love to manage his club Liverpool if he gets an oppurtunity but says a failure coould be “brutal”.
“If I feel I am good enough and can contribute and the role is offered to me, I would consider it really seriously but, if I don’t feel I am good enough and there is a danger of ruining my reputation, I won’t go near it.
“This is a brutal club to get it wrong at. Look what happened with Roy Hodgson – he never got time and, in a short space of time, he was out,” he added.
