Steven Gerrard has declared that it would be unbelievable to one day become manager of Liverpool.
The 35-year-old midfielder, who is currently plying his trade in MLS with the LA Galaxy, admits he would love to manage the club where he spent close to two decades as a professional player.
The Daily Mail has released excerpts of the Anfield legend’s book – ‘Steven Gerrard – My Story’ – in which the former Reds captain reveals his plans to possibly try his hand at management once his playing days are done.
“I sometimes allow my mind to wander and think, ‘Wouldn’t it be amazing to manage Liverpool one day?’ Right now I can’t know if I’d be good enough or if I would even be asked to do the job in the future,” Gerrard wrote.
“First and foremost I’d have to feel confident that I could be a successful manager. I would never take the job on the back of my name — or just because some fans would like me to step in on the basis they’d once supported me as a player.
“I know that being manager of Liverpool Football Club is a huge job. It needs the right man with the right credentials and know-how.
“So for me, at the moment, it can’t be anything more than a ‘maybe’. All I can really say is that it is a lovely dream — but I simply have no idea if it will ever happen or if it’s even realistic to talk about it.”
