Gerrard rules out Liverpool return for now


Steven Gerrard will not be returning to Liverpool in the immediate future because there is currently 'no job opportunity' for him at Anfield.

Gerrard spent 17 years at Liverpool before leaving his boyhood club at the end of the 2014-15 season to move to Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy.

During his time at Anfield, Gerrard won the Champions League, the UEFA Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups and he has made no secret of his desire to return to the club when his playing days are over.

While he is in contact with manager Jurgen Klopp, the former club captain admits he does not have anything lined up just yet.

"People need to understand that Jurgen Klopp is his own man, he's got his own team of people around him, that he is very happy and content with," Gerrard told Laduma.

"Of course I've got a huge Liverpool connection and Liverpool is in my heart and always will be but there's nothing to really comment on.

"There's no future decision to work with Klopp, I get on really well with him, we're in contact but there's no job opportunity there at the moment.

"There is absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment."

Gerrard us into the final six months of the two-year deal he signed when he joined LA Galaxy and the 36-year-old knows his career is coming to a close.

"I know I'm in the twilight, I know I'm coming to the end pretty soon,” he stated. "I just want to try and enjoy every last moment really. The one thing I'm going to miss [is] walking on to the pitch.

"I'm going to miss that buzz very much because that's what I play the game for."
