Steven Gerrard shares a joke with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp during training session

Steven Gerrard and Jurgen Klopp shared a joke as the Liverpool legend joined his former Reds team-mates for a session at Melwood training ground on Monday morning.

The England centurion left the Merseyside outfit in the summer after a distinguished 17-year career, swapping his rain-drenched hometown for sunny Los Angeles.

However, Gerrard has been given permission by the new Liverpool manager to train with the Liverpool squad following the conclusion of LA Galaxy’s Major League Soccer campaign.

However, the Champions League winner has already ruled out a potential return to Liverpool on a short-term loan.

The Reds secured their first home Premier League win under the 48-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager on Sunday evening after James Milner netted the decisive goal from the spot in a 1-0 victory over Swansea City.

And despite the wet conditions at Melwood, Gerrard and Klopp appeared in high spirits as Liverpool geared up for their League Cup semi-final against Southampton on Wednesday night.
