Former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard has offered his take on who should be next England manager – current Reds boss Brendan Rodgers!

The ex-Three Lions skipper took the opportunity to heap praise on current head coach Roy Hodgson, but believes Rodgers would be the ideal candidate to lead the national team in the future.

Gerrard and Rodgers didn’t always see eye to eye at Anfield, but the 35-year-old is in no doubt that the Northern Irishman could be a perfect fit for England.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, he said: “Obviously when Roy’s had his time… Brendan Rodgers.

“The way he plays would suit England. He would improve the possession football you need at international level. His man management is brilliant. At tournaments, in the heat, it is absolute torture and we need to keep the ball better.

“If you want someone who would get the team playing and the players would enjoy working with, it would be Brendan.

“Look, I can’t find any mistakes with Roy. He’s always been very good to me and is the right man to be the England manager now. I hope he has a very good European Championship and stays as long as possible but will be judged on what happens in the finals — he knows that himself.”
