After a successful stint at Rangers, Steven Gerrard made his first foray into the Premier League with Aston Villa, where he turned the tide, but his performance gradually stagnated, and in his second season, despite major reinforcements, he failed to produce any results and was sacked in the middle of last season.
After that, he was rumored to be in the running for the manager’s job several times, but he never took charge of any club or national team, and instead worked as a soccer commentator.
However, he has not given up on the idea of taking charge of a team again, and is close to taking over at Al Ettifaq (Saudi Arabia), according to The Athletic.
Although he was invited to Saudi Arabia this summer, Gerrard himself had denied the possibility of taking over as coach. However, he seems to have changed his mind after talks held last week, and negotiations for a contract are moving forward.
Will the Liverpool legend also land in Saudi Arabia, which continues to acquire European players such as Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kanté, Roberto Firmino, Edouard Mendy, Rubén Neves, and Kalidou Koulibaly?
