Steven Gerrard has admitted his dream is to manage Liverpool once the Reds captain’s playing days are over.

The 33-year-old, who signed a new two-year deal at Anfield in June, has started his 16th season with the Merseyside outfit, helping Brendan Rodgers’ men win their opening three Premier League games.

Generally regarded as one of Liverpool’s greatest-ever players alongside Kenny Dalglish, the England international revealed he would be keen to emulate the Scot and take charge of his boyhood club in the future.

“The dream come true would be to manage Liverpool, when the Liverpool job becomes available,” Gerrard told TwentyFour 7 Football magazine.

“There are world-class managers there ready already, but we’ll have to wait and see, it would be the icing on the cake.

“When you get to a certain age, my age, you need to start thinking seriously about a life after football.

“I am planning on doing my badges and qualifications over the next 12 months.

“I definitely see myself as a manager rather than a coach, but that could change. I remember speaking to Jamie Carragher and he really fancied it but
he’s decided media is what he wants to do.

“It’ll be strange seeing him on Sky but I’m really delighted he’s doing it. He can leave managing Liverpool to me!”
