“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.
