Steven Gerrard is expected to speak to the FA about a coaching role with England. 

Sky Sports are reporting that the Liverpool legend, who was recently involved with the Three Lions' under-19 side, will be consulted about who should be the next manager of the national team. 

Gerrard is expected to retire within the year, having spent the last two seasons with LA Galaxy in the MLS.

Looking forward 

The FA are keen to speak to a number of former internationals about how England should move forward following their humiliating Euro last-16 exit at the hands of minnows Iceland. 

As part of the 'Golden Generation', Gerrard played 114 times for his country, scoring 21 goals. That side were often pilloried for their performances, but that pales in comparison to the criticism being levelled at the current side. 

The 36-year-old has plenty of experience of international tournaments, though he himself never got further than the quarter-finals of either the World Cup or the European Championships. 

Strong opinions 

However, he evidently has some pretty strong opinions on Roy Hodgson and co. as he was keen to share them after England's latest embarrassment. 

Having recently told the Telegraph that "with a shrewd appointment, we can make more of the quality we have", Gerrard was clearly unhappy with Hodgson's running of what has to be described as a very talented team. 

The general consensus is that players like Dele Alli and Daniel Sturridge could have been made more of, but that is now just one byline in the autopsy on England's tournament. 

Should Steven Gerrard be offered a coaching role? Have your say in the comments.
