Former Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard has turned down the offer to coach League One side, MK Dons, and has set his sight on other opportunities, including the prospect of re-joining Liverpool in a coaching capacity.
The 36-year-old held preliminary talks with the League One outfit last week over the possibility of replacing Karl Robinson, but both parties decided to move in a different direction.
The former England captain said in January that he was not yet ready to assume full managerial role as he works towards completing his UEFA A license.
He said, “I’ve dreams and aspirations of going into coaching and management but at the moment I’m nowhere near ready for management.
“When you start your coaching badges you realise pretty sharp it’s different. You’re in control of 25 men with different egos.”
The man with over 700 appearances for his boyhood club made it clear he didn’t want a role to hinge on who he is, but rather on what he could offer and learn.
