Liverpool favourite Steven Gerrard has been talking to digital media company Laduma about the possibility of returning to Anfield to work with Jurgen Klopp, but before Reds fans get too excited, there's nothing on the agenda too soon.

The 36-year-old is one of the Reds' top goalscorers despite being a midfielder, and has made the third most appearances for the famous Merseyside outfit, but with many feeling he left Anfield too early, there has been persistent talk of a return to the club in some capacity, with current boss Jurgen Klopp a big fan of the former England skipper.

He is currently working on his coaching badges, and a return to his old stomping ground is the inevitable connection, Gerrard has said that despite being in touch with the German, he has not agreed any future role.

“Of course I’ve got a huge Liverpool connection and Liverpool is in my heart and always will be but there’s nothing to really comment on," Gerrard told Laduma.

“There’s no future decision to work with Klopp, I get on really well with him, we’re in contact but there’s no job opportunity there at the moment.

“There’s nothing for me to say on the matter really, only that I’m a big fan of him.

“If I had something to say I wouldn’t keep supporters waiting. I’m not the type of person that will keep something under my hat and sort of wait and delay but there is absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment.”

The Reds legend has been in decent form for the Galaxy this season, scoring three times in 16 matches to help his side to fourth place but having played three games less than league leaders FC Dallas.

But the reality is that Gerrard's best days as a player are behind him, and it's inevitable that a leader with his qualities would seek to move into coaching and eventually management.

Though Gerrard may not have arranged a return to Anfield just yet, it would be no surprise to see him helping out at the club sooner rather than later.

And only a fool would bet against the prospect of Gerrard taking the reins at Liverpool one day.
