Exclusive – Rodgers opens door to Gerrard return

first_imgBrendan Rodgers has opened the door to a Liverpool return for Steven Gerrard.The Reds skipper will call time on his Anfield career at the end of the season, when he will join MLS side LA Galaxy.Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier claimed the former England captain will make a fantastic manager when he hangs up his boots and Rodgers insists the midfielder will be welcomed back with opens arms if he decides to follow that route.  When asked whether Gerrard would make a good boss, Rodgers said: “He’s certainly got the leadership side to him.“I’ve spoken to him a lot over the last year in terms of his future. This time was always going to come. He’s one of the greats of the game.“He didn’t feel the coaching side was quite right for him right now. This is a guy who has prepared himself to play every single day over the last few years.“He didn’t want to sit on the side and come on in a game, it just wasn’t for him. He wanted to get away for a couple of years and experience something different.“We’ll stay in contact over that time and, if coaching is something he really wants to do, then I would welcome him back into my set-up. He’s a wonderful guy. He supports you 150 per cent as a manager.“If coaching is something he wants to do then, as I do with all my staff, I will support and help them become what they want to be.“He’s been incredible. He’s someone you only really appreciate when you’ve had the chance to work with him.“Sometimes you see people from the outside and you know they’re fantastic players but, when you come in and work with him, you see the standards he sets every day. He never has a lazy day.“He comes in every day and wants to be the very best he can be. Sometimes people drop off but he never does. The standards he tries to set are high. He’s a real, genuine man.”last_img read more
