Liverpool legend, Steven Gerard has been targetted as a new manager of Championship side, Ipswich Town as the former Liverpool captain has been impressing in charge of the club’s Under 18s this season.
Gerard was offered the managerial position at MK Dons last summer but rejected the offer claiming he was not ready for that level of management just yet. He has now spent this season studying under Jurgen Klopp and several teams are expected to want to prise him away from Liverpool at the end of the season.
Ipswich Town managerial position became vacant last week after Mick McCarthy decided to walk away from the club early as he was expected to leave at the end of the season.
The club’s owner, Marcus Edwards is taking his time before making a new managerial appointment, but he is said to have made contact with third parties over making Gerard the Tractor Boys manager next season.
Gerard is expected to be ready for first team management soon, but it remains unclear if he would want to remain in Liverpool and continue learning or he would take the plunge into professional management after this season.
