According to Melissa Reddy, Liverpool FC correspondent for Goal.com and regular on LFC TV, Steven Gerrard will not take up the vacant position of U23 manager after the announcement that current manager, Michael Beale is set to leave to take up the assistant manager position at Sao Paulo.
Melissa reports that Gerrard has been in talks with the club about a coaching position and it is expected that he will take up a role in January although there is nothing concrete yet and nothing has been signed.
It is believed that he sounded out the club about a role before announcing his retirement as a player in November.
The report this morning says that Gerrard will take more of a floating role within the club and will start right at the very grass roots of football in the academy while also perfoming some role within the England set up.
The Mirror reported yesterday the Gerrard was set to be announced as Michael Beale’s successor in the U23 role, a story which appeared no where else I might add.
There is a lot of speculation surrounding Steven Gerrard’s future and this will of course continue until there is an official announcement.
