“I don’t want to start any unnecessary rumours,” Sky Sports quote Steven Gerrard as saying.
Sorry Stevie, but when you say things like this we cannot help but get excited!
The former Liverpool skipper has suggested that he will be returning home “sooner rather than later”.
Gerrard has said that he is enjoying his spell in the MLS with Los Angeles Galaxy, but that he misses the people of Liverpool, attending games at Anfield and even the cold weather!
And he vowed to represent Liverpool Football Club again, somewhere down the line.

Speaking at a question & answer session with fans at LA Galaxy’s stadium, he said, according to Sky Sports: “I will be going home at some point.
“I don’t want to start any unnecessary rumours. I’m really happy where I am at the moment. But I’m sure somewhere down the line I will represent Liverpool Football Club.
“I miss my friends and my family. I miss a bit of cold weather.
“I miss going to the games. I spent 35 years in Liverpool. Liverpool’s my home, it always will be. This is my second home for a short period of time.
“Sooner rather than later I will return to where I’m comfortable with my people – and that’s Liverpool.”
So where could Gerrard fit in?
I’m sure many of us have dreamt of the legendary midfielder one day managing the Reds. And while that remains true, there is nobody that I would rather have in charge currently than Jurgen Klopp.
Gerrard’s best role should he return in the next couple of years would be as part of Klopp’s backroom staff. He would be wasted in any sort of boardroom or ambassadorial position upstairs.
Few know Liverpool Football Club better than Gerrard. His appointment to the coaching team would bring valuable knowledge, and increase the already incredible bond between the club and the fans.
