Looming Liverpool managerial arrival to open door for club idol return

If Jurgen Klopp is named as Liverpool’s new manager club icon Steven Gerrard could return as his assistant manager in the not too distant future, according to reports from RMC.

The former Reds captain only ended his long association with his hometown club over the summer as he opted to join LA Galaxy in America’s Major League Soccer upon the expiration of his contract.

Gerrard’s heroics on the pitch have made him, arguably, Liverpool’s finest ever player, and his stock remains extremely high on Merseyside even though his powers visibly waned during his last campaign.

But, reports claim that the club may not have seen the last of the midfield general, who could return to work as Klopp’s assistant should the German take the job.

Gerrard is contracted to LA Galaxy until the end of the 2016 season and has already opened the door for a return to Liverpool in a coaching capacity.

However, he’s not likely to play for the Premier League club again, with MLS commissioner Don Garber having claimed that a winter loan move, akin to previous deals involving Robbie Keane, Thierry Henry, Landon Donovan and David Beckham, is unlikely.
