Steven Gerrard is ready to investigate the reasoning behind Liverpool’s recent sacking of both Mike Marsh and Colin Pascoe.

The decision to remove such a large chunk of the back-room staff came from manager Brendan Rodgers off the back of a disappointing season for Liverpool.

But former England captain and Liverpool midfielder, Gerrard, is keen to know why the pair were removed from their positions.

"I was surprised Brendan Rodgers made changes to backroom staff at Liverpool," said Gerrard. "I will be interested to hear his reasons why.”

Gerrard, who played over 700 games for Liverpool in a 17 year stay at the club was the first to leave Anfield this summer and is expected to be followed out of the door by want away winger Raheem Sterling.

Gerrard spoke out for the first time regarding Raheem Sterling in a recent interview and urged his former team-mate to stay.

Sterling's future

"I hope Raheem stays. For his development and stability. The frustrating thing for me would be if he went to another team and was just a squad player."

Gerrard is moving to the Los Angels Galaxy and will become their latest ex-Premier League star, after the arrival of David Beckham in 2007.

TV work

Gerrard was recently announced as BT Sport's latest pundit and will join an already strong array of former players including Michael Owen, Rio Ferdinand, Ian Wright and David James.

The announcement of Gerrard joining BT coincides with the telecommunications company also unveiling Gary Lineker as their new host of Champions League coverage for the new season.
