Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has stated that Everton are interested in making Steven Gerrard their new manager. The journalist talked about Steven Gerrard and the interest from the other half of Merseyside on the ‘Here We Go’ podcast. According to him, the Liverpool legend is on their radar.
Gerrard was the motivating factor as Liverpool came from three goals at the half-time break to score three goals in six second half minutes to force extra time in the 2005 Champions League final. In the end, Liverpool defeated their Italian opponents on penalties to win the competition. Gerrard and his teammates added the FA Cup title the next season.
Steven Gerrard will most likely turn down the Everton job due to his allegiance to Liverpool. The Reds legend is widely regarded as one of the best young coaches in European football following his good work at Rangers and he has been linked with a lot of managerial jobs in the last 12 months.
Gerrard was the main man for Rangers as they ended the nine-year domestic dominance of Celtic in the Scottish top flight. Celtic had won the last nine league titles in the Scottish Premiership and were favourites for a tenth successive league title before Gerrard and his players stopped it to win a 55th league title for the club.
Rangers won the league title in style as they went through the whole season without suffering a single loss. Steven Gerrard also led the Gers to the round of 16 of the Europa League before being eliminated by Slavia Prague of Czech Republic.
