Gerrard, 34, plays his final Liverpool game a week on Sunday, when the Reds travel to Stoke City, and will then be heading for the MLS to join up with his new club.
However, with our long-serving captain expected to hang up his boots at the end of 2016, we have already looked into the possibility of bringing him back to Anfield in a coach role.
According to The Times, Gerrard will return to Merseyside during the American off-season. He’ll use this time to shadow Rodgers and gain experience before a possible move into coaching or management.
Our iconic No. 8 is already working towards his UEFA B licence but has recently insisted that he would not want to take a job on reputation alone. He’s prepared to pay his dues and work his way up towards the top.
Asked about his relationship with our owners, Fenway Sports Group, and the possibility of returning to Liverpool in the future, he said: “I have had a couple of brief conversations.
“I had a chat with Tom Werner and one recently with Brendan about what I am thinking about, short term and long term. But there is certainly nothing in detail. I have started on the coaching ladder but we will have to wait and see.
“I don’t know at the moment what’s going to be there after America, but I’ll certainly be coming back. I am a supporter and I always will be, so if there isn’t a role it won’t be the end of the world and I’ll be coming to support the lads like the normal punters.”
