CONFIRMED – 120 Goals In 504 Games Star Will Join Liverpool In January

 Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is planning a sensational return to Anfield this off-season. But the capacity in which he will serve is still unknown.

However, Goal understands the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder is not expected to return to Liverpool as a player although he may train with them. It is also claimed Gerrard is set to meet the Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp as regards the move.

Reports filtered in on Tuesday that the former England international could return to his boyhood club to train, with a playing agreement also potentially on the cards.

Gerrard saw his maiden MLS campaign ended by a Seattle Sounders defeat last week – having joined LA Galaxy on an 18-month deal. But he is unlikely to feature in the Premier League between now and next season.

Goal cite Omnisport who claim the 35-year old midfield ace has spoken to Klopp to wish him good luck, after being appointed as Liverpool boss last month, and that the Liverpudlian would be welcome to train at the Melwood training complex over the coming months.

Following LA Galaxy’s defeat to Sounders in the MLS play-off, Gerrard acknowledged: “It could be my last season as a footballer.”

A Champions League and FA Cup winner with Liverpool, Gerrard slowed down towards the end of his 17-years association with the Reds although he would be a brilliant presence for Klopp around Melwood as the German tactician seeks to return the club to their glory days.
