The Spanish former Red has been in discussions with the Merseyside club over a potential return in some form.

Luis Garcia was a fans’ favourite at Liverpool over three years at the Anfield club, with the Spaniard an impressive attacker with the famous English club.

The former Spain international was part of Rafa Benitez’s side that famously won the Champions League in 2005, coming back from three goals down to beat AC Milan on penalties.

The gifted attacking midfielder joined the Reds from Barcelona and ended up returning to his homeland with Atletico Madrid after three years in England.

Garcia has revealed that he has been in discussions with Liverpool over a potential return to Anfield in a non-playing capacity when his career finishes.

“People have asked if I want to go back as a couch or scout or something else,” the 36-year-old told Bleacher Report.

“I’ve been talking with the club recently about working with them. We will have to wait and see.”

Garcia also spoke out about his special bond with the Reds fans, who took him to their hearts and sung chants about him. He also stated that Anfield is one of the most special stadiums in world football.

“Anfield has the best atmosphere of any stadium I’ve played in,” he continued.

“You have to be there to feel it. The people make you feel like you’re at home, they treat you like family. The people on the streets there take care of you, even when you come back years after playing.”

As well as the Champions League, Garcia also won the UEFA Super Cup, FA Cup and Community Shield during his time at the Merseyside club.

He currently plays for Indian Super League champions Atletico Kolkata, but is coming to the end of his playing career.
