Steven Gerrard has been tipped to become Liverpool manager by Jason McAteer after the expiration of Jurgen Klopp's contract with the European champions in 2021.
The Premier League legend remains a cult figure at Anfield having spent most of his career with the Reds since joining them in 1998.
He left the club in 2015 for LA Galaxy before dropping the curtain on his illustrious and trophy-studded career to take up managerial role at Scottish club Rangers.
And 48-year-old Jason McAteer, who played with The Reds from 1995 until 1999, has seen the former England captain as huge potential to succeed Klopp, Sportbible reports.
"Steven Gerrard made a clever move going to Rangers to begin his management career - and I wouldn't be at all surprised if stop two on his journey is Anfield," McAteer said.
"I've got an inkling that Gerrard will be the next Liverpool manager at the start of the 2021-22 season,'' the 48-year-old claims.
McAteer also predicted that Liverpool would win the 2020/21 Premier League title with the German manager.
The Reds currently lead the Premier League table with twenty-eight points, six ahead of English champions Manchester City.
''I'm confident Liverpool will win the Premier League this season under Jurgen Klopp and then he'll stick around to try to retain the trophy for another season,'' he submitted.
