‘Why not?’: Carragher backs Liverpool favourite to return to Anfield, claims there is ‘no doubt’

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has given his backing to Steven Gerrard over a possible return to the club in the future as manager.

After the departure of Brendan Rodgers in 2015, many names were thrown into the hat about whom the replacement for the ex-Liverpool boss would be at the time.

The club was able to appoint Jurgen Klopp, much to the delight of many fans who have seen the Reds get back to the upper echelons of European football, where they truly belong.

Klopp has had memorable success at Anfield, and last season’s Champions League glory will forever be remembered but one thing for sure is that the ex-Dortmund boss will not be at Liverpool forever.

The biggest fear for fans is, of course, is the day Jurgen Klopp’s reign as manager will come to an end. And according to Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard is definitely a good candidate to replace Klopp if or when that move is needed in the future.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: “Why not?

“There will be a clamour for probably a lot of people I think whenever Jurgen Klopp decides his time is up at Liverpool but hopefully that’s a long way away.

“There’s no doubt Steven Gerrard will come into that because of the job he’s doing at Rangers but also because he’s a Liverpool legend.”
