Former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince has backed Steven Gerrard to go into management and has named the ideal club for him to begin his post-playing career.
The 36-year-old has spent the past 18-months with MLS outfit LA Galaxy, but will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of next month.
And it has been widely regarded that he will go into management now and hang up his playing boots, despite a number of reports linking him to clubs all over Europe.
However, speaking with BT Sport (via the Mirror) Ince, who played alongside Gerrard briefly during his own spell at Anfield in the 90s, believes that the Reds legend should follow in his footsteps by taking charge of MK Dons.
Earlier this week it had been reported that Gerrard had held talks with the League One club, with Sky Sports claiming that the job had been offered to him on a permanent basis.
The Mirror states that Gerrard will likely make a decision regarding his future on Monday, and Ince took to the BT studio to urge him to accept the position, as it would be the perfect place for him to start his managerial career.
Ince himself is a former Dons manager, guiding them to the League Two title in 2008 before leaving for a short spell at Blackburn.
He then returned to the club for another year in 2009, but couldn't replicate his earlier success.
Take the job
"If you're going to start your job as a manager, especially as a young manager like Steven Gerrard, there's no better club to do it at [than MK Dons]," Ince said.
"The infrastructure is fantastic. They've got a great fan base. You get support from the chairman, that's for sure.
"He (Gerrard) must be seriously thinking about it because obviously he's not going to make an announcement until Monday."
