Liverpool have announced that Steven Gerrard, aka Stevie G, aka Captain Fantastic is going to rejoin the club as youth team coach starting Februrary.
Gerrard made his Liverpool debut in 1998 and went on to captain the club until he left after the 2014-2015 season. That was to join LA Galaxy in America’s MLS.
In a career spanning 17 years with more than 700 games for the reds, the 36 year old won 9 trophies. He remains much loved and respected by club and country.
It feels like completing the circle; returning to the place where professionally it all began. However, this isn’t a decision based on emotion – it’s about what I can offer and contribute to Liverpool.
This is welcome news for Liverpool club and its fans.
