Liverpool fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on speculation that Steven Gerrard could return.
It has been reported by the British newspaper that the duo have spoken to each other several times on the telephone since last month.
“The manager is now convinced that Gerrard’s presence will help define the standards of professionalism he expects around Melwood, Liverpool’s training ground,” according to the report.
The Independent claims that at the moment the talk is about Gerrard training with Liverpool until January 15 when he is due to return to the USA to rejoin his club Los Angeles Galaxy.
The Major League Soccer outfit are not willing to sanction a loan deal, according to the report, and will demand a transfer fee if Liverpool want to sign Gerrard in a playing capacity.
The former England international midfielder left Liverpool at the end of the 2014-15 Premier League season.
Following the report about the 35-year-old’s prospective return, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to have their say.

Seriously Gerrard, just stay gone. The club is better off without you anywhere near it for a long time #LFC— BatDog (@BarkKnightRises) November 3, 2015
Take sentiment out of it, what is the actual point in bringing Steven Gerrard back to Liverpool? How long until he undermines Klopp? #LFC— Joe (@Joe_Turner150) November 3, 2015
If Gerrard comes back and and negatively affects Liverpool, that's on Klopp, not Gerrard. #LFC— Shane Lydon (@lydon9) November 3, 2015
Always respect and admire Gerrard. But dont see how his ability level at this stage of his career would be helpful in moving #LFC forward.— Greg_YNWA1 (@Greg_YNWA1) November 3, 2015
If Gerrard does come back idgaf I would put him in there instead of Can atm. Plus hopefully he gets given a chance at CAM.. BEAST there #LFC— Pin (@P1N_tv) November 3, 2015
Gerrard coming back in a playing role would be very surprising. Would hope it would be a very limited role with focus on coaching. #LFC— Dan Copeland (@ETFootball) November 3, 2015
Not going to lie I would love to see Gerrard back in a #LFC shirt. Not in a prominent playing role but more of a coaching and advisory role.— Tom (@Tom_Skurks77) November 3, 2015
