- Steven Gerrard has returned to Liverpool as an academy coach
- The Liverpool legend retired as a stint with LA Galaxy in late 2016
Steven Gerrard has finally returned to boyhood club Liverpool after months of speculation joining the academy as a coach.
The 36-year-old held advanced talks with the Reds in November 2016 over helping shape their future generation as he takes steps towards management.
Gerrard, who has been working towards his UEFA ‘A’ licence, will begin his duties in February. It will be in a floating role initially, with the chance to oversee an age group to be examined further down the line.
