Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is currently working with the club’s youngsters and expects to see him officially appointed as youth coach for next season.

Gerrard retired last year and has already taken steps on the road to becoming a football manager, starting his coaching badges in January. Gerrard took an unofficial role at Liverpool in February, but has also been doing pundit work for Sky Sports.

Klopp believes it’s only a question of time before Gerrard is given a full-time position at Liverpool.

“There’s no announcement to do at this moment…” he said, “but what I can say is…yes.

“He is doing a real job at the academy at the moment. He enjoys it a lot. Yes, he will be a coach of the youth next season. I’m pretty sure. But we will tell you exactly which team when we want to tell.”

Meanwhile, Klopp has ruled out Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana for Liverpool’s weekend trip to West Brom. Henderson is out with a foot injury which he sustained in February while Lallana is currently undergoing rehabilitation for a hip injury.

Klopp said: “[With Adam], I’m pretty sure [he will come back in training] after the Crystal Palace game, he will probably be in normal training and that means then he is in the squad or we can think about him then.

“With Jordan it could be next week in training, could be the week after, but I think we are in a good way with him also.”
