Klopp rules out playing Anfield return for Gerrard

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool do not intend to reprise Steven Gerrard’s decorated Anfield career.

Gerrard ended a 17-year association with Liverpool at the end of last season, joining Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy on an 18-month deal.

Reports on Tuesday suggested the 35-year-old would train with his boyhood club during the MLS off-season, with a potential playing role also in the offing.

Speaking ahead of his team’s Europa League match at Rubin Kazan, Klopp told a media conference that Gerrard would be welcome to use the club’s Melwood training facilities to keep in shape, but – as reported earlier by Omnisport – stated that this involvement was unlikely to extend to competitive action.

“All I can say is that I’ve had contact with Stevie – one phone call and a few messages,” said the Liverpool boss. 

“He is a legend. If he’s in Liverpool and wants to train ahead of next season in LA that’s absolutely no problem. But nothing else.”
