Steven Gerrard: Planning to take his coaching badges when he quits playing

Gerrard, who won his 100th cap for England in midweek against Sweden, recently clocked up his 600th appearance for Liverpool in an illustrious career for club and country.

The 32-year-old is keen to continue playing for the foreseeable future, but admits he will look into getting his coaching badges when he does quit international football.

"I'm going to go into my coaching badges after my England days are over and when I've got the time," Gerrard told the FA's official website.

"When the international breaks are on, I'll go and do my coaching badges and we'll see where it goes."

Gerrard insists he will not rush into pursuing a career in management and admits he cannot expect to be a successful coach because of his achievements as a player.

"I've always said I'll only become a coach or a manager if I'm good enough," added Gerrard.

"I don't think you go down that road because you've been a decent player. That's a mistake that a lot of footballers have made.

"Only go down that road if you're good enough. You have to try it, get your badges first and make sure you're comfortable and have your own belief in your own knowledge of the game."
