Steven Gerrard has fuelled speculation about a possible return to Liverpool with an Instagram message that hints his LA Galaxy career could be over.
Gerrard posted an image with him in his LA Galaxy kit and added, “This City and this Club will always hold a special place in my heart.”
Jurgen Klopp was reported in the Mirror as saying that “Gerrard is always so welcome at Liverpool FC” and Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news.
The Liverpool legend might always have a place at the club, but it seems that fans are hoping he isn’t planning to return as a player.
However, fans would love to see him back in a coaching role at the club, and think that he would have a positive effect as a role model on the younger players.
Here are a selection of Messages from Liverpool fans on twitter.
Tbh i just dont see a clear weakness in this Liverpool team. Maybe they are a better team without Gerrad?

People who want Gerrard back as a player don't understand football

No problem with Gerrard coming back as long as it's not as a player. Let's not be silly there.

Anyone who thinks Gerrard should back to the club as a player is either drunk or high of crack, as a coach I'm all for it.

it'd be a dream come true if Gerrard comes back as a coaching staff, and Liverpool go on to win the Premier League under Klopp (':

Steven Gerrard just wants to come back to Liverpool FC, so he can conveniently slip again and prevent us from winning the league.

If Gerrard returns to Liverpool it will be more astonishing than Jesus returning from the dead

Anyone asking what purpose would it serve to have Gerrard back at Liverpool should think about his impact on the younger players. #RoleModel
