Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has indicated that Steven Gerrard could be set for a return to the club – but it is unclear when and in what role.
Gerrard has thanked the supporters of current club LA Galaxy in a post on Instagram that suggests he will soon be leaving the MLS.
And speculation is rife that he will be coming back to Anfield – and Klopp has done little to play it down.
“Steven Gerrard is always so welcome at Liverpool FC.” he said.
“You cannot imagine how welcome. So, absolutely no problem.
“But everything that we have already or will speak to each other stays in this talk.
“That is how I know Stevie and that is how I am. But nobody should worry that we have no space for Steven Gerrard.
“No – everything will be fine, 100%”. he finished.
Gerrard’s message to his current team’s fans certainly makes it look like he will soon be on his way.
“Living in Los Angeles and playing for the great Galaxy supporters has been a privilege.” Gerrard posted.
“You have made this place feel like home to me. This city and this club will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you.” he added.
