Gerrard: Don’t take it as Red

STEVEN GERRARD says he could launch his coaching career away from Liverpool.

The former Liverpool and England captain remains undecided whether to hang up his boots at the end of the MLS season in November.

He is currently taking his coaching badges and is keen to join the backroom staff at Anfield.

But LA Galaxy midfielder Gerrard, 35, would be up for trying his hand elsewhere if Liverpool fail to come calling.

Gerrard said:

“I’m at a bit of a crossroads at the moment, whether to call it a day at the end of the season, or to do one more, but we’ll have to wait and see.

“Most seasons in Europe finish in May so maybe some football offers might come my way, maybe some coaching roles. Hopefully I’m going to be in a position to consider some offers very seriously.

“I’m always going to biased towards Liverpool, and the FA, because it’s where I spent all my career as a player. But when I retire, I’m going to be available.”

Certainly Gerrard would have plenty to offer Liverpool in any coaching capacity. His experience, along with his knowledge and passion for the club is second to none. Liverpool FC has been his life since he joined the Reds youth academy as a nine-year-old.

But is it too soon to return to Anfield? His exit after 17 years as a Liverpool player didn’t take place on the smoothest of terms and new manager Jurgen Klopp is still finding his feet with his own team of backroom staff.

Would it be better for both parties if Gerrard served his apprenticeship somewhere else, before perhaps returning to Liverpool in a couple of years?

Many of the current squad were team-mates and it may be better to put a bit of time and space between them.

Reds supporters, would you like to see Klopp add Gerrard to his coaching staff?
