Gerrard backed to take over at Liverpool

English Premier League

Former Liverpool star Dirk Kuyt has backed Steven Gerrard to become the Reds manager one day after impressing at Rangers.

In his second season with the club, Gerrard led Rangers to their first Scottish Premiership in 10 years and are yet to suffer defeat in the league.

Kuyt feels it would be great for Gerrard to take up the reigns up at Anfield one day, having become a club legend during his playing days.

“I feel that his leadership qualities are going to take him very far as a manager. I think it would be great if Steven Gerrard went on to manage Liverpool. He’s Liverpool through and through and spent his entire playing career at Anfield.

“I have always got on very well with him, and we are still in contact from time to time.

“Steven has said some great things about me in the last couple of years, we have a special bond. He does not have to speak about me, but he still does.
