Outgoing Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has admitted he has thought about returning to the club as manager, as he prepares for an emotional Anfield farewell this weekend.

Gerrard will lead Liverpool into battle on home soil for the final time against Crystal Palace on Saturday, with the captain already dreaming of a return to the club as boss one day.

Brendan Rodgers may be sitting in the Anfield hot-seat for now, but Gerrard may well be a contender to take on the role once he has finished his end of career stint in America with LA Galaxy.

"Being the manager of this club is probably one of hardest jobs in the world,” stated Gerrard.

“First and foremost you have to be good enough, got to be prepared for it and got to be offered it.

“We will have to wait and see. I don’t want to jump into conclusions and create headlines. A lot of things would have to happen from now until then so we will have to wait and see, but it is something I have thought about so maybe one day.”

Meanwhile, Gerrard has revealed his failure to win the Premier League title with Liverpool is the biggest regret of his career.

“A career is always full of high and lows and the biggest regret is not having a Premier League winners medal,” he added.

“I would have loved one of those. That would have been the icing on the cake, but in life you can’t have it all.

“In a perfect scenario I would have that, so of course I have had some low moments, some cruel moments as well along the way.

“But I think sometimes to achieve the good things and some highs you have to go through setbacks and feel disappointment and pain to bounce back and get the highs as well.”
