Steven Gerrard exclusively told twentyfour7 Football Magazine that he “dreams” of one day managing Liverpool.
Gerrard, 33, recently signed a new two-year contract with the Anfield club and is currently focusing on helping England qualify for next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
However, the midfielder has started planning for life after his playing days come to an end and is planning on doing his coaching badges over the next year.
“The dream come true would be to manage Liverpool, when the Liverpool job becomes available,” the England captain told twentyfour7 Football magazine.
“There are world-class managers there already, but we’ll have to wait and see, it would be the icing on the cake. When you get to a certain age, my age, you need to start thinking seriously about a life after football.
“I am planning on doing my badges and qualifications over the next 12 months. I definitely see myself as a manager rather than a coach, but that could change.
“I remember speaking to Jamie Carragher and he really fancied it but he’s decided media is what he wants to do. It’ll be strange seeing him on Sky but I’m really delighted he’s doing it. He can leave managing Liverpool to me!”
