Steven Gerrard: Liverpool midfielder would love to manage club in future

The 33-year-old midfielder signed a new Reds deal this summer but is already making plans for the long-term future.

Gerrard told TwentyFour 7 Football magazine: "When you get to a certain age, my age, you need to start thinking seriously about a life after football.

"I am planning on doing my badges and qualifications over the next 12 months.

"I definitely see myself as a manager rather than a coach, but that could change.

"The dream come true would be to manage Liverpool. There are world-class managers there ready already but we'll have to wait and see, it would be the icing on the cake.

"I remember speaking to Jamie Carragher and he really fancied it but he's decided media is what he wants to do.

"It is strange seeing him on Sky but I'm really delighted he's doing it. He can leave managing Liverpool to me!"

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
