Liverpool delivered landmark news to their supporters on Friday evening, with club legend Steven Gerrard returning as an academy coach.

Gerrard is set to take up a “wide-ranging role” at the Reds’ Kirkby academy, having announced his retirement from professional football back in November.

The former Liverpool captain spent 17 years in the first team on Merseyside, before leaving to join MLS side LA Galaxy in 2015.

Seemingly always destined to return to Anfield, Gerrard now finds himself part of Jurgen Klopp‘s backroom staff, working alongside the likes of Alex Inglethorpe and Steve Heighway at the academy.

Given Gerrard’s legendary status, the 36-year-old’s return was met with widespread positivity on social media.
