Former star of Liverpool, Steven Gerrard has hinted out the possibility of retiring in 2016 as the veteran player stated that his playing career is reaching it’s end but even though he will be staying out of the pitch and not playing at a professional level, a coaching career is something that has interested him.
Steven Gerrard told the media: “I’m not 100 percent sure but I think it will probably be my last year as a player. I have regrets I didn’t start my coaching badges at 21, 22. All that time wasted in hotels as an England player when I’ve been bored and was watching ‘The Office’ and ‘The Sopranos’. I wish I’d done my coaching license then so I’d be doing my pro-license now”
The 35 year old player showed interest in becoming a coach as he still wants to have an important role in the world of football and not completely retire or stay away from the sport. At the moment, Gerrard is playing for LA Galaxy, who have become a fairly regular addition to the pundit tips on the Daily Accas website, because they have a great win record, especially at home.
The playing career of Steven Gerrard kicked off back in 1987 and from the looks of it, it will be concluding in 2016. The majority of this timeline has seen the English midfielder performing with Liverpool and it’s without doubt that he has become a legend in Anfield, for everything that he has accomplished.
28 years of his playing career was spent performing in Anfield for Liverpool and Steven Gerrard announced that he would like to make a return to his former club and become part of the team once again but this time around not as a player but as a coach instead.
Gerrard confirmed that he has already talked with the bosses of Liverpool and revealed to the public that the Premier League club would like to see him making a return.
“I have had a chat with Jurgen Klopp. The club has let me know they’re keen for me to come back. I am always going to be biased towards Liverpool and the FA and basically when I am back home I am going to carry on with my punditry work and try and move around clubs and gain more experience, going to watch managers and learning more’’ Steven Gerrard added on as he hinted out a possible return to Liverpool.
