Steven Gerrard’s assistant Michale Beale reveals Liverpool legend’s ‘dream’ to replace Jurgen Klopp at Anfield
Oct. 12, 2019
Steven Gerrard ‘dreams’ of one day replacing Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager, according to his assistant manager at Rangers, Michael Beale.
Beale, who used to be a former youth coach at the Anfield club, has said Gerrard is not getting ahead of himself for now and is focusing on the job at hand at Ibrox.
But he did admit the Rangers boss would one day love to take over at Liverpool once Jurgen Klopp leaves his post.
The German recently claimed Gerrard would be his pick to replace him when he does leave the club.
He said: “If you ask who should follow me, I’d say Stevie.”
But Beale has revealed Gerrard is in no rush to seal a managerial role with the club, insisting the Reds couldn’t be in better hands in this present time.
Beale told the Echo: “We have not spoken about it. It’s a compliment of course, but at this moment in time, Liverpool have the best manager for them.
“As a supporter of the club, Steven being a passionate supporter, we don’t just support the first team.
“We follow it through to the Under-23s and 18s and we have watched some games together. We know what is going on at all the youth teams.
“He is the biggest Liverpool fan and at this moment in time, if he had to choose a manager, it would be Jurgen Klopp.
“I don’t think Steven is looking too far ahead, it is a big job and obviously that is the dream – or rather, the aim – for him long term to manage the club.
“But I think Steven would say himself, right now, the best manager for Liverpool Football Club is Jurgen Klopp. Long may that continue.”
