Speculation has been rife that Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard will return to the club in some capacity when his contract with Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy expires this summer, but the Merseyside born and bred midfielder has confirmed that he doesn’t have a job waiting for him when he returns to the Northwest of England.
“He’s got his own team of people around him that he is very happy and content with,” said the 36-year old. “Of course I’ve got a huge Liverpool connection and Liverpool is in my heart and always will be but there’s nothing to really comment on. There’s no future decision to work with Klopp, I get on really well with him, we’re in contact but there’s no job opportunity there at the moment,” he continued. “There’s nothing for me to say on the matter really, only that I’m a big fan of him. I hope he brings success back to Liverpool next season and I’ll be supporting him from over here.”
There’s been talk of Gerrard, a former England captain, taking up a coaching role similar to the one that ex-Manchester United man Gary Neville had under former Three Lions supremo Roy Hodgson, but with the manager’s position still in flux following a dismal showing at the European Championships in France, a spot at the Football Association is yet to materialize. With that being said, the Liverpool stalwart has already confirmed that he’s interested in hooking back up with the club he joined as a child in some capacity.
“If I had something to say I wouldn’t keep supporters waiting,” stressed Gerrard, insisting that there’s nothing doing at Anfield at the moment. “I’m not the type of person that will keep something under my hat and sort of wait and delay but there is absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment.”
