Legendary midfielder accepts Aston Villa job
Club legend Steven Gerrard is returning to the Premier League as head coach of Aston Villa.
After ending his playing career in the MLS. Gerrard had a very successful first stint in management at Glasgow Rangers, leading them to a record-breaking 55th Premiership title after an undefeated season in the league last year.
However, he faces a tougher challenge as he moves south of the border. He joins a squad full of injuries, currently in the worst form in the Premier League, although it’s still early enough in the season for him to make a real impact.
While a fairytale return to Liverpool as a manager has often been talked about, we won’t have to wait long to see it – even though it will be with him in the opposition dugout.
Gerrard will make what is sure to be an emotional return to Anfield with his Aston Villa team on the 11th of December.
