Published Add your comment

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed he wants to reunite with former teammate and friend Jamie Carragher in a coaching role at Liverpool.

The 35-year-old currently plays for MLS side LA Galaxy but is yet to decide what to do once his contract expires.

One option could be to partner up with Carragher at Anfield, which the midfielder admits he has thought "a lot about" since moving to the States.

"I’ve imagined it a lot. Jamie’s knowledge of the game is superb," Gerrard told men's fashion brand MR PORTER, as per the Guardian.

"I know the amount of time and effort he puts into the work that he does now, also how much he loved the game when I played with him.

"I think we’ll both work for the club again at some point during the rest of our lives. When that will be, I don’t know. Will that be together? I’m not sure.

"Would I work with Jamie Carragher again for Liverpool? Of course I would, without a doubt, but it’s for other people to make that decision.

"It goes without saying that the club’s in our hearts and it’s difficult if the club come calling but we’ve other things going on at the moment - it’s not as if we’re begging for it or desperate for it - but they know where we are.

"When I retire from football I am going to be available for people to offer me roles if they feel I’m one of the candidates.

"Would I go for another role in the game if any offers [from Liverpool] didn’t come my way? Yeah I would."

For many Liverpool fans, Gerrard's homecoming would be something of a dream come true, but they may have to wait a little while longer given the Englishman hasn't dismissed the prospect of another season in the MLS.

"Physically I could play in the MLS for this season and next, 100 percent for sure," he continued.

"Am I going to do that? Do I want to do that? Am I going to be offered the chance to do that? I don’t know, we’ll have to wait and see.

"I’m at a little bit at a crossroads at the moment, what to do, whether to call it a day at the end of the season or whether maybe to do one more but we’ll have to wait and see.

"The season finishes here in November. Maybe some football offers might come my way, maybe some coaching roles will come my way. I’m doing my coaching badges and I’m on my A licence as we speak.

"Hopefully I’m going to be in a position to consider some offers very seriously come Christmas."
