Leeds United: Steven Gerrard ‘very keen’ on becoming manager

Leeds United: Steven Gerrard 'very keen' on becoming manager - Leeds United News

Leeds United are considering an approach for Steven Gerrard as their new manager, and he is ‘very keen’ to take over, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Search underway

Leeds have already been knocked back by several potential new managers, with Marcelo Gallardo and Mauricio Pochettino both uninterested in taking over at Elland Road.

With Feyenoord boss Arne Slot also rejecting the role, sporting director Victor Orta has had to turn his attentions elsewhere, and former Aston Villa boss Gerrard is now seen as an alternative option.

The Latest: Gerrard very keen

According to a report from Football Insider, the 42-year-old is ‘very keen’ on the job, as he would jump at the chance to return to Premier League management.

Leeds previously kept tabs on the Englishman during his time up in Scotland with Rangers, being seen as a top target when Marcelo Bielsa’s future was in doubt.

The Verdict: Right appointment?

There is no hiding that the Liverpool legend struggled in his last managerial role, averaging just 1.18 points per match during his time with Villa, but that does not mean that he should be completely ruled out.

Raphinha in action for Leeds United

Leeds fans, do you remember how much Raphinha's move to Barcelona was worth?

During his time with Rangers, Gerrard transformed the fortunes of the club, winning the 2020-21 Scottish Premiership title, after picking up a remarkable 102 points over the course of the season.

Former Villa goalkeeper coach Neil Cutler has lauded his former manager as being a ‘serial winner’ who has ‘unbelievable drive’, and these qualities will no doubt make him determined to succeed in his next role, which could be a boost for Leeds in their bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
