Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he’s been in contact with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard but revealed the LA Galaxy midfielder will not be returning to Anfield on loan.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League clash against Rubin Kazan, following a day of speculation linking Gerrard with a return to Merseyside, Klopp told reporters that he said to Gerrard “doors are always open”.

The German coach also called Gerrard a “legend” and confirmed that if he wants to train at Anfield “that’s no problem” - but, crucially, he added: “Nothing else.”

This is according to the Daily Mail’s Merseyside-based football reporter Dominic King and the Press Association’s Carl Markham, who both attended Klopp’s latest press conference on Wednesday evening.


Klopp’s words are likely to disappoint both Liverpool fans and Gerrard himself. The chance to play a few more matches for the Reds would naturally appeal to a die-hard Reds fan like Gerrard, but Klopp appears to have decided that the past is best left in the past.

Hamann agrees with Klopp's decision

Perhaps the former Borussia Dortmund head coach listened to the advice of former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann, who said on talkSPORT earlier today that bringing Gerrard back to Anfield is “the last thing” Klopp needs.

He argued that Gerrard’s return would disrupt the peace and quiet Klopp requires to get on with his job.

Liverpool fans, while probably disappointed, trust in Klopp and will stick by their new manager regardless of his decision to reject the opportunity to sign Gerrard on loan.
