Is Steven Gerrard getting closer to the managerial position in Liverpool?
If rumors are to be believed, Steven Gerrard is on the verge of taking up a coaching role in his former club Liverpool FC.
After having left the Premier League club on 2015, Steven Gerrard went on to join the MLS side LA Galaxy and after spending 1 year with the American club, Gerrard eventually decided to hang up his boots and retire.
The playing career of Steven Gerrard spans for over 30 years and he is arguably one of the greatest players ever to wear the Liverpool jersey, it’s hard to come up with another performer that has made an impact for the Premier League club as the 36 year old retiree.
Despite having made over 500 appearances for Liverpool and lifting some of the biggest titles in the world, there is 1 piece of silverware in particular that he just could not secure and it was the Premier League trophy but even though he has retired, it does not mean that Gerrard is unable to add it to his collection, he can still win it as a coach.
Every fan of Liverpool want to see Gerrard making a return and what better way for him to do it than by being a coach? The English midfielder has always been one of most clever players in the pitch as he has had to guide his team countless times to victory either with his pin-point passes or explosive shots and hopefully this can be translated over to the coaching role.
The impact that Gerrard has made has been so huge that he has been recognized by Liverpool’s mayor, Joe Anderson who is going to award the retiree with the title of freedom of Liverpool which is an honorary title that is given by either a city or a corporation and it’s only granted to individuals who have displayed exceptional services.
‘’I was stunned and overwhelmed when I heard my name was being put forward by the Mayor to receive this honor.Liverpool is my home city and so to be acknowledged in this way leaves me speechless. To even think about getting such an award makes me feel very humble and of course immensely proud.” This was the statement released by Steven Gerrard after finding out that he is going to receive the award.
Being given the title of freedom of Liverpool and reportedly being on the verge of becoming the coach of the youth division of Liverpool are huge achievements for Steven Gerrard.
