According to several outlets, the former Liverpool midfielder will manage the Reds’ Under-18 team next season after serving as a coach with the Merseyside club in 2017 with a number of age groups.

Gerrard, 36, retired from professional soccer in 2016 after finishing up his two-year stint with MLS side LA Galaxy.

The U-18 side is currently managed by Neil Critchley and has been since 2013. ESPN FC is reporting that no announcement will be made on Gerrard in the immediate future.

While the U-18 role is filled at the moment, Liverpool does have an opening with its U-23 team.
