Steven Gerrard returns to Anfield
Club legend Steven Gerrard has returned to Anfield and will begin his work immediately as manager of the club. The former captain takes over at a time where his beloved club play their trade in the Npower Championship.
The 62 year old takes his first job into management, after Liverpool suffered the agony of relegation last season. Success is a a rare thing on merseyside at the moment, with the reds last tasting major success in the champions league final of 2015.
The club announced on their website late last night about their appointment, and hoped they had chosen the right man to steer the club back on track.
"We are delighted to announce that Steven Gerrard has been appointed as the new manager of Liverpool Football Club. We chose Steven as he knows exactly what this football club represents and he shares the same passion and will to succeed as we do"
"We wish him a long and successful reign and hope he can recreate what he experienced at the club as a player"
It is believed Gerrard has been given a 1 year rolling contract, worth around £15,000 a week.
