Former Liverpool and Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard, 36, will transition into coaching.
The new role will provide Gerrard with the opportunity to enhance his coaching skills and development under the stewardship of Alex Inglethorpe.
“It feels like completing the circle,” Gerrard said. “Returning to the place where professionally it all began. However, this isn’t a decision based on emotion, it’s about what I can offer and contribute to Liverpool.
“I don’t think I need to explain to people what this football club means to me, but when I knew coming back was a serious option I wanted to make sure it was a substantive role and a role in which I could really help the organization.”
Gerrard spent 17 years with Liverpool after graduating from the Academy.
