“How much longer can Klopp stay at Liverpool? I mean, Klopp could be there for five more years, but easily you could see him one day, because of the character he seems to be, turn around in 18 months and say, ‘Listen, this is me’.

“So I just see that Steven Gerrard will be looking at Liverpool as his next step rather than somewhere like Newcastle.”

When asked about the Newcastle job last week, Steven Gerrard gave little away saying:

Sitting in this position, I certainly wouldn’t like anybody to be speculating about my job,” he said about Bruce. “So I certainly am not planning to get involved in any of the speculations towards his.”

However, Gerrard did admit that the takeover at St James’ Park has rightfully sparked plenty of attention.

“I think it’s interesting what is happening at Newcastle. I think if anyone deserves a break it’s the Geordie fans, so I’m sure excitement levels are very high on the Toon,” he added.

“I’m sure everyone involved with the game is looking on with interest to see how it develops. But from a personal point of view, I don’t really get involved in speculation and I wish Steve all the best.”, he added.
