No job offer from Liverpool but Klopp’s great – Gerrard

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed that he is a “big fan” of current boss Jurgen Klopp but there has been no “job opportunity” to join the German’s coaching staff.

The former Reds star has been linked with a non-playing role at the club since he moved to Major League Soccer to play for Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Gerrard failed to win the Premier League in his time at Liverpool and says he wants to stay in California until he lifts the MLS Cup.

However, Gerrard admits he is “chewing over a lot of different things” as he prepares for life after his playing career is over.

“Jurgen Klopp’s his own man, he’s got his own team of people around him that he’s very happy and content with,” Gerrard said.

“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 very well with him, we’re in contact but there’s no job opportunity there at the moment.

“There’s nothing for me to really say on the matter. I’m a big fan of him, I hope he brings success back to Liverpool next season (suggesting the video was recorded several weeks ago) and I’ll be supporting him from over here.

“If I had something to say I wouldn’t keep supporters waiting, I’m not the type of person that would keep something under my hat and wait and delay. There’s absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season.

“What I can say is the phone’s going, and people are enquiring ‘what is the next move’ and I am chewing over a lot of different things in my head but there’s nothing to announce at the moment.”
