Gerrard: Klopp advice was key to me taking U18s role

27th April 2017

Steven Gerrard has revealed how advice from Jürgen Klopp convinced him that taking charge of Liverpool U18s would be the ideal next step in his fledgling coaching career.

The former Reds captain will take a leading role in the development of the club’s current crop of talented youngsters from next season, replacing Neil Critchley as he steps up to take charge of the U23s.

Gerrard has been back at the Academy since February, when he accepted a position at the club’s Kirkby-based youth facility three months on from deciding to bring his trophy-laden playing career to an end.

And the 36-year-old has explained how his next move in coaching owes a lot to the guidance offered by the club’s first-team manager.

He told “The key thing about this is [that] it’s Liverpool U18s, it’s massive, but it’s away from the cameras.

“I know I’m going to make loads of mistakes, that’s part of the process.

“One of the things Jürgen said to me when I sat down with him [was], ‘You’ll make mistakes, you’ve got to learn from them, grow and move on – and you ideally want to do that away from cameras.’
