Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed that Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is the manager he would most like to play under, were he given the opportunity to choose.

This is not to say that Gerrard has his sights set on a transfer away from Liverpool to Real Madrid, but the England skipper was merely answering questions from supporters in a Twitter Q&A.

When asked by one fan to identify a manager he would want to work with, Gerrard appeared to take little time to select Mourinho, with the Liverpool star calling the Santiago Bernabeu coach 'the Special One'.

Gerrard could be plying his trade with Mourinho at Real Madrid had things panned out differently in his career, with the 32-year-old previously revealing that the Portuguese had wanted to bring him to the club.

It was not the first time Mourinho attempted to secure the signature of Gerrard, with the former Chelsea boss twice trying to sign the Liverpool legend during his time at Stamford Bridge.

In 2005, following Liverpool's famous Champions League win in Istanbul, Gerrard outlined his desire to quit Anfield and sign for Mourinho's English champions.

However, Gerrard soon abandoned this idea to sign a new contract with Liverpool and reiterated his love for the club.

"[Liverpool] weren’t really challenging at the time, so there was something to think about. But I ended up saying no and a year later I said no again," Gerrard told the Daily Mail in September this year.
