In the world’s worst kept secret, apparently Steven Gerrard would like to manage Liverpool some day, it was revealed in the Liverpool Echo yesterday. Gerrard is currently managing Rangers in Scotland, and his assistant Michael Beale spoke with the local newspaper about the midfielder’s future plans.

“As a supporter of the club, Steven being a passionate supporter, we don’t just support the first team, we follow it through to the U23s and 18s and we have watched some games together.” Beale told the Echo. ”We know what is going on at all the youth teams. He is the biggest Liverpool fan and at this moment in time, if he had to choose a manager, it would be Jurgen Klopp.

“I don’t think Steven is looking too far ahead, it is a big job and obviously that is the dream - or rather, the aim - for him long term to manage the club.

”But I think Steven would say himself, right now, the best manager for Liverpool Football Club is Jurgen Klopp. Long may that continue.”

Beale was an Academy coach at Liverpool until 2017, when he joined Gerrard at Rangers.
