Iconic skipper targets top job in the future.
Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has said that he would one day like to manage the club when his playing days are over, the Metro reports.
The 33-year-old, who has spent his entire career with the club, recently put pen-to-paper on a new deal to prolong his playing career with his boyhood club and doesn’t seem to be showing any sign of slowing down given his current form.
But the midfielder is already planning for life after retirement by declaring an early interest in the manager’s job at Anfield.
“I’d consider management maybe if I was good enough,” said Gerrard.
“If I was good enough and I ever got the shout to be the Liverpool manager in 10 or 20 years, of course I’d consider it very seriously.”
However, Gerrard has insisted that just because he has had a successful career as a player doesn’t mean that will necessarily translate into management.
“Just because you’ve been a decent player and had a successful career at Liverpool, it doesn’t mean you’re going to turn out to be a top manager.”
Gerrard has bagged 161 goals in 639 appearances for the Reds and has recorded two FA Cups, three League Cups, and a Champions League winners medal during that time and has had the benefit of playing under some of the game’s most successful managers.
