Steven Gerrard considers Liverpool coaching role after retirement in 2016

New Delhi: Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is considering a move into coaching at Anfield after he ends his playing career.

The former England captain told the Daily Telegraph, “I’m not 100% sure but I think it will probably be my last year as a player.”

Gerrard, 35, has been has taking part in Jurgen Klopp training sessions during the Major League Soccer (MLS) close season.

“I have had a chat with Klopp. I haven’t had an offer as such but the club have let me know they are keen for me to come back but there hasn’t been a conversation where they have said: ‘We want you to do this, we want you to do that.'"

He added, "They (Liverpool) have welcomed me back in. I am always going to be biased towards Liverpool and the FA and basically when I am back home I am going to carry on with my punditry work and try and move around clubs and gain more experience, going to watch managers and learning more. I am basically available from November, December 2016. Everyone in the football world will know I am available and hopefully I will be 75 per cent into my coaching badges.”

Gerrard left Anfield in the summer, joining Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS.
