Liverpool have reportedly put plans in place to bring club legend Steven Gerrard back in some capacity after holding talks about his long term future, according to the Daily Express.

Gerrard held discussions with Brendan Rodgers and chairman Tony Werner about the possibility of returning in the near future to shadow the Liverpool manager following the conclusion of the MLS season later in the year.
The iconic midfielder will make his final appearance at Anfield this weekend, but the Reds have deemed that his long term future should reside with his boyhood club after a 17-year association.
“I don’t know at the moment what’s going to be there after America, but I’ll certainly be coming back,” said Gerrard.
“I have had a couple of brief conversations. I had a chat with Tom Werner and one recently with Brendan about what I am thinking about, short term and long term. But there is certainly nothing in detail. I have started on the coaching ladder, but we will have to wait and see.”
Gerrard has been helping to coach the under-16s at the club’s academy recently as he works toward his Uefa B licence, and the Reds are keen to utilise his vast experience acquired over 700 appearances for the club in a massively successful career.
