Steven Gerrard keen on one job after retiring

In the Premier League era, there have been few players more iconic than Steven Gerrard.

The Liverpool legend has finally called time on his playing career after hanging up his boots at LA Galaxy, and his next career move is already being met with anticipation.

The former midfielder has been trying his hand at punditry, but the Mirror report that what really entices him is the chance to work in a coaching role back at Anfield.

The 36-year-old rejected the opportunity to manage League One side MK Dons, deciding it was too soon for him to take the plunge.

Yet, it's possible he could work alongside Jurgen Klopp on Merseyside, though any potential talks aren't likely to take place until after Christmas.

If that isn't enough for him to be going on with, he could also combine the job with a role in the England set-up.

The FA are keen to bring some experienced heads on board to impart their wisdom, which means Gerrard could become part of Gareth Southgate's set-up if the interim manager is appointed as expected.

Gerrard would be welcomed 

Klopp has already stated he'd welcome Stevie G with open arms if he ever wanted to return to Liverpool.

"Steven Gerrard is always so welcome at Liverpool FC," he said last month, per the Mirror.

"You cannot imagine how welcome. So, absolutely no problem. But everything that we have already or will speak to each other stays in this talk.

"That is how I know Stevie and that is how I am. But nobody should worry that we have no space for Steven Gerrard."

The thought of Gerrard taking a regular seat in the Anfield dugout might be all too much for some excited Liverpool fans, who have quickly taken to Twitter to express their delight at the prospect.

And who knows, if he joins before the end of the season, maybe he'll get that Premier League winner's medal after all.

Should Gerrard coach with both Liverpool and England? Have your say in the comments.
