Liverpool Steven Gerrard has revealed his plans for a career in management when he eventually hangs up his boots, Goal reports.
Gerrard, who has 653 career appearances for the Anfield club, is already eyeing a move into management as he nears retirement.
The 33-year-old said, “I’ve started my coaching badges recently, a couple of months ago and I’m going through the necessary steps to becoming a manager but no decision has really been made.
“I’d be interested in being a manager or even a number two, but I think you have to wait and see if you’re good enough, and what job offers you get.
“I’ve obviously got huge experience and knowledge about the game because I’ve played at the top for so long. But that doesn’t automatically mean that I’ll be a good manager or number two, you’d have to wait and see.
“But I’ve always said it, if big job offers come my way then I’d have to make that call and see.”
Gerrard has worked with a number of esteemed managers – the likes of Rafa Benitez, Gerard Houllier, Fabio Capello and Sven-Goran Eriksson have all utilised the midfielder in their time with England and Liverpool – but it was the spell under Kenny Dalglish that Gerrard refers to affectionately.
“It was emotional to see Kenny back at the club,” he said. “I remember getting that phone call from him in Dubai, and it was a great feeling to have him back.”
