Steven Gerrard is expected to discuss an England coaching role with the FA
Steven Gerrard the former England and Liverpool captain is believed to be the next popular face among a number of ex-internationals consulted over who should be the next England manager.
Gerrard is currently engaged in his second season at LA Galaxy but he admitted earlier this year that he could retire from his playing-career before 2016 ends.
He has also given a hint to be seen as a managerial candidate when he left Liverpool at the end of 2015 after serving 28 years at Anfield that he would seriously consider any coaching involvement with his former club or the FA.
He said in January: “I’m not 100 per cent sure but I think it will probably be my last year as a player.
“I have had a chat with (Liverpool manager Jurgen) Klopp. I haven’t had an offer as such, but the club have let me know they are keen for me to come back.
“I am always going to be biased towards Liverpool and the FA and basically, when I am back home, I am going to carry on with my punditry work and try and move around clubs and gain more experience, going to watch managers and learning more.
“I am basically available from November, December 2016. Everyone in the football world will know I am available and hopefully I will be 75 per cent into my coaching badges.”
