Steven Gerrard Returns to Anfield

Reds icon, Steven Gerrard, will return to Anfield this Saturday, 11 December, for the first time in a professional capacity since leaving as a player in 2015.

This time, the Kop legend is sitting on the defensive side as a manager with his in-form Aston Villa, planning to deprive title-challenging Liverpool of three points.

Gerrard has had a great start to his English Premier League managerial career, having won three of his four matches in charge of Villa; he also gave Manchester City a run for their money in their narrow 2-1 defeat last month.

During a press conference ahead of his reunion with his boyhood club, he revealed the two reasons as to why his return “brings a smile to his face.”

The 41-year-old tactician said: “One, because I’ve got a good relationship with a lot of people at the club, I had a fantastic time there.”

He added: “I’m a local boy, the team I supported growing up, and I always will support that team, of course I will.”
