‘Gerrard’s presence alone is enough to inspire you’

Liverpool’s U18s will be led by an inspirational figure next season in the form of Steven Gerrard, according to his predecessor in the role, Neil Critchley.

It was announced on Thursday that the club’s former captain take on his first job in management from the start of the 2017-18 campaign, overseeing an age group that has recently produced talents such as Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold for the first team.

And for Critchley, who will step up to take charge of the U23s next term after four seasons with the U18s, the news will provide a big boost for the Reds’ Academy setup.

“Steven has been unbelievable. He doesn’t know the importance of his own presence and the influence he has on people as just his presence alone is enough to inspire you,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“The way he has gone about his business here and the way he has been as a person, [it] has been fantastic to be around his company.

“The boys are going to benefit from that hugely going forward and, with the support he will get around him as well, it can only be a benefit to the Academy as a whole – not just the U18s but the younger players behind them as well.
