Former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has enjoyed a career worthy of the highest praise. He became something of a talisman for the Scousers during his time as their captain and is already regarded as a legend both at their club and in English football as a whole.

Gerrard’s time in English football saw him compete in several World Cups, European Championships and Champions League campaigns with him coming away with a memorable medal in the latter competition, playing an integral part in Liverpool’s successful 2005 season in Europe.

After 17 years as part of the Liverpool setup, Gerrard – in 2015 – departed for the MLS, joining LA Galaxy and scoring 5 goals in the two seasons he has spent there.

However, recently Gerrard stated his desire to leave Galaxy once his contract expired and the MLS season came to a close. Not many were sure about the Englishman’s next step but according to a report made by BBC Sport and CitiBlog, his next move may come as a surprise to most.

Gerrard has reportedly been in talks to replace Karl Robinson as the manager of League One outfit, MK Dons. The Dons, who right now are struggling in 21st place in the table, parted ways with long-time manager Robinson last month and have been in the market for a new manager ever since.

Gerrard holds zero managerial experience at this point, but has long been regarded as a highly influential figure in both his Liverpool and England dressing rooms, as evidenced by his long-term captaincy for both teams.

Who knows how much truth there is to this development, but it certainly would be an interesting career move for the legendary Gerrard, who no doubt could bring a wealth of experience to the table should he end up sitting in the manager’s seat.
