There is literally no other manager in world football less likely to take over at Manchester United than Steven Gerrard – bar perhaps David Moyes…
Our former captain is as hated in Manchester as he is adored in the red half of Liverpool – having famously turned down the advances of Fergie on multiple occasions – both as a youngster and senior pro.
Stevie is currently in charge of Rangers and doing a fine job north of the border, just two points off Celtic at the top of the table.
So much so, a Manchester United fan account on Twitter has proposed the idea of him taking Jose Mourinho’s job!
Even if Mourinho is sacked, who can ManUtd get at this stage of the season?
Zidane isn’t interested, Spurs won’t let Poch leave, Giggs is failing as Wales Manager, who is realistically available?
One young manager that is doing well and could be an option is Steven Gerrard.

Is he on drugs?!
Predictably, the replies range from angry, to mocking, to downright funny – from all sorts of fans – but namely Liverpool and United ones.
Haha I think Gerrard will become homeless first, before managing United. Any other former Liverpool players, perhaps, but Stevie got real hatred for that club. Man’s a joke 😂😂😂

Unemployed Zidane isn’t interested but employed Liverpool legend Gerrard could be interested in the Manchester job? How did you work that one out?
