Jurgen Klopp Drops a Big Hint About Steven Gerrard Returning to Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp dropped a big hint this afternoon that Steven Gerrard could be about to return to the club in some capacity.

The legendary Reds midfielder hung up his boots and announced he was retiring from playing football earlier today via an emotional Instagram post, and just a couple of hours later, Klopp sat down for his weekly media conference.

Gerrard’s announcement didn’t specify what he’d do next or where he’d end up, but the Anfield boss might be trying to give the club’s supporters a big hint that their prodigal son is coming home.

Speaking via the Liverpool Echo ahead of the Premier League fixture against Sunderland on Saturday, Klopp said: “This is not the room I want to speak about this. When there is something to announce we will announce it and then we talk, you can imagine.

“That’s clear. That one day in the future there will be something to announce I’m pretty sure too.

“But up till then, nothing to say, that’s all.

“Steven Gerrard, 186 goals, each goal is a story.

“The first thing you should all maybe learn if someone wants to help Steven Gerrard is stop being so excited about each next step.

“For everything in life you need room, space to jump in and do something and learn something new. If he’s retiring as a player the next thing he will do is new.

“He was a young player, he’ll be a young whatever. There’s nothing to talk about and I’m absolutely the wrong person to talk about it because maybe all of you know him better than me.”

Gerrard was linked with a final swansong at Celtic with former manager Brendan Rodgers, and was even linked with the vacant manager’s position at League One side MK Dons.

However, by hinting there could be something to announce soon, is Klopp suggesting that talks over a Liverpool return have been ongoing? And would he fit in with the German’s backroom team?
