Steven Gerrard admits he has thought about working with fellow club legend at Liverpool

The former Reds captain reveals he has daydreamed about a reunion with Jamie Carragher in the Anfield dugout.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed to the Liverpool Echo that he has thought about a potential reunion with longtime Reds teammate Jamie Carragher on the coaching staff of the club one day.

Gerrard and Carragher played together in the first teat at Anfield for 15 years before the defender retired from football in 2013, with the midfielder leaving the club two years later to join MLS side LA Galaxy.

Both players are now working as television pundits but both have also been tipped to make the transition into coaching at some point, with Gerrard confirming that he would be interested in a return to Liverpool in that capacity.

The 35-year-old former England captain told the Echo that he believes both he and Carragher will return to Anfield at some point, and admits he has imagined reuniting with his friend and former teammate on the coaching staff.

Gerrard said: "I've imagined it a lot. Jamie’s knowledge of the game is superb. I know the amount of time and effort he puts into to the work that he does now, [but] also how much he loved the game when I played with him.

"I think we’ll both work for the club again at some point during the rest of our lives. When that will be, I don’t know. Will that be together? I’m not sure. Would I work with Jamie Carragher again for Liverpool? Of course I would, without a doubt, but it’s for other people to make that decision.

"I think everyone knows, it goes without saying, that the club’s in our hearts and it’s difficult if the club come calling, but we’ve other things going on at the moment. It’s not as if we’re begging for it or desperate for it, but they know where we are."

Gerrard is already in the process of studying for his coaching badges and a move into coaching looks extremely likely for the current Galaxy man, whilst Carragher has opened a coaching academy and done some work with England's youth teams.

Having both legends together on the club's coaching staff in the future would represent something of a fairytale for Liverpool supporters, particularly those who grew up with the duo in the side.

However, it remains to be seen whether the opportunity will arise for the dream to be realised, with both former players pursuing their separate careers for the foreseeable future.
