Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has admitted there is no place for him at Liverpool under Klopp — for now.
The 36-year-old is widely expected to retire at the end of 2016 when he contract with LA Galaxy expires, but according to the Echo (interview with Laduma), he accepts he will have to wait for a vacancy at Liverpool to become available.
“People need to understand that Jurgen Klopp is his own man,” he said.
“He’s got his own team of people around him that he is very happy and content with.
“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 really well with him, we’re in contact but there’s no job opportunity there at the moment.”
He also spoke about Anfield, calling it his “favourite stadium” and admitting that the atmosphere was “difficult to describe”.
“It’s my favourite stadium,” he said.
“You know, those fans are very unique and special. They follow the team all over the world in the numbers.
“Some of the atmospheres I’ve played in at Anfield are difficult to describe, the noise and the passion and the atmosphere.
“I’m just really happy and pleased that they are developing that stadium and not moving to a new stadium because it’s got a lot of history there and a lot of special moments.”
Gerrard is currently working towards his UEFA A Licence and hopes to make a quick jump into coaching.
Would he make a good Liverpool coach (and possible future boss)? Let us know…
