I would be glad if Steven Gerald succeeds me-- Jurgen Klopp


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he would be thrilled if club legend Steven Gerrard was his eventual successor.
Former Reds captain Gerrard returned to Anfield as an academy coach in February and in April he was named the manager of the U18s.
Klopp recommended Gerrard for the role and has told The Times that he will do all he can to help the 36-year-old, who will complete his UEFA A Licence this summer.
"It's perfect that we can involve Steven," said Klopp. "What a guy, he's fantastic.
"He was one of the world's best footballers ever.
"We had him last winter when he had a break in the USA (from former club LA Galaxy) and he had a few sessions with us, a few shooting sessions, and I thought 'what is that'?
"His shooting. Unbelievable.
"I told him when I leave, or the club sack me, I don't care of course who'll be my successor, but I'd love that he'd be it.
"I'll do everything I can to make sure he gets all the information he needs.
