LA Galaxy boss Bruce Arena has suggested that Liverpool hero Steven Gerrard could one day return to the Premier League as Liverpool manager.

Arena has been working with the former Reds skipper since he joined on an 18-month contract in the summer, and he believes that Gerrard has all the attributes needed to succeed as a football manager.

Arena has described Gerrard as having a “studious” nature and is convinced that he will one day return to Merseyside to manage Liverpool.

Lifelong Liverpool fan Gerrard spent his whole career at Liverpool after joining the academy at the age of eight. He is regarded as a Liverpool hero and one of the best players ever to wear a Liverpool shirt.

“We talk about what he’s done at Liverpool and we compare notes,” said Arena, quoted by  Team Talk

“He’s going to be a manager after he leaves the game as a player. Where that’s going to be, I don’t know.”

“I would love it if someone like that could replace me, but I don’t think it’s going to be with the Galaxy. I hope not as I’m the manager!”

“I would guess he’ll go back to England and then you can guess where he might end up after that.”

The Galaxy boss also revealed that Gerrard undertook a surprising amount of research before joining up with the MLS side and that he took no time at all to learn all about the squad.

“Before he came, I visited Liverpool and was surprised how much he knew about our team,” continued Arena.

“By the time he got here at the end of June he knew everyone. He knew the names of players he was meeting for the first time and he knew about their qualities.”

“He was fully prepared. We’ve had other players in the past where the transition of moving their families was a major chore. With him, it was already done. It was so smooth it was ridiculous.”

“If Steven didn’t play football he’d be very successful at something else. He could have been a professor.”

“He’s so articulate and bright. He could have made a success of anything. He made a pretty good decision becoming a footballer, but he’s a pretty sharp guy.”

Liverpool fans will be happy with the news and hope that their favourite star Steven Gerrard returns to his home “Anfield”.
