Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said there are no immediate plans to return to the club in a coaching role.


Gerrard, 36, is currently playing for LA Galaxy in MLS but revealed recently that this season could be his last as a player, when he then aims to move into coaching.

He left Liverpool at the end of the 2014-15 campaign, but trained with Jurgen Klopp’s side in November to keep fit during the MLS offseason.

However, the former England skipper has said there has been no decision made about returning to his boyhood club in a different capacity.

“Jurgen Klopp is his own man, he’s got his own team of people around him that he is very happy and content with,” Gerrard explained to Laduma. “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 very well with him, we’re in contact but there’s no job opportunity there at the moment. There’s nothing for me to say on the matter really, only that I’m a big fan of him and I hope that he brings success back to Liverpool next season and I’ll be supporting him from over here.”

Gerrard added: “If I had something to say, I wouldn’t keep supporters waiting. I’m not the type of person that would keep something under my hat, sort of wait and delay but there’s absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment.

“But what I can say is the phone is going and people are enquiring, ‘what is the next move?’ I am chewing over a lot of different things in my head but there’s nothing to announce at the moment.”
