In a news that will put smiles on the faces of every scouser, Club legend Steven Gerrard has opened about his possible future in England after he finishes his stint in the United States.
The long serving Liverpool captain moved away from the Merseyside at the end of the last season after it was clear that he could no longer be a part of everyday football at Anfield.
He agreed a move to the MLS franchise LA Galaxy where he did not have a really successful season with just 2 goals and three assists in 13 league appearances.
Speaking to the Sky network the former England international said that he thinks his long term future is at Liverpool in some sort of a coaching capacity.
Gerrard said, “I don’t want to shut any doors and I don’t want to make any rash decisions because where I sit now, I still feel healthy, I still feel fit.”
“I still feel like I could play at most levels of the game. So right now, I’m not ready to retire.”
However the 35 year old said that he would love to return to England and work with the FA or his boyhood club for the second half of his career.
“Will I be ready in 10 or 11 months time? We will have to wait and see, but I’d love nothing better than to be with Liverpool or the FA because they are the ones that have been great to me throughout my playing career and they are the ones I am going to be biased towards.”
After over 10 years as Reds captain, lifting numerous trophies including the Champions League and FA Cup, fans will be pleased to hear that Gerrard sees his future at the club but surely they will have loved to see him play on the field for years to come.
Do you think Gerrard will lift the Premier League as a coach or manager?
