Steven Gerrard hopes to manage Liverpool in the futureby Jack Kitson / 06 September 2013, 09:02Tweet
Steven Gerrard has revealed that he dreams to one day manage his beloved Liverpool. The Reds and England skipper is keen to start taking his coaching badges and qualifications and then in the future, one day after his retirement, he hopes to take charge of the Merseyside club. Speaking to TwentyFour 7 Football magazine admitted that it would be “the icing on the cake” to manage his boyhood club and go on and experience success in the dugout.
Gerrard made his first appearance in a Liverpool shirt back in 1998 in a league match against Blackburn Rovers. The 33-year-old has since gone on to win the Champions League, two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and two Community Shields. However, he is yet to win anything with England, with next year's World Cup likely to be his last opportunity.
Liverpool have enjoyed a bright start to the season and are top of the table following three wins from their opening three games. Daniel Sturridge has netted the winner in all three matches as he continues to shine in the absence of Luis Suarez. The Reds can currently be backed at 12/1 with Paddy Power to win the Premier League for the first time, while. they are also available at 10/1 to go all the way in the FA and 14/1 to win the League Cup for the second time in three years.
