Liverpool: Gerrard’s Anfield return; former defender in serious condition; youngster shines for England

Club legend and Liverpool idol Steven Gerrard could be set for a return to Anfield according to the Liverpool Echo. The former England captain’s contract with LA Galaxy will soon be coming to an end after a spell in the States and the Merseyside lad is considering a return home, as he said:

“I’m wondering whether I should play on for a little bit longer or whether I should call it a day. I haven’t 100 per cent decided on that yet. I still enjoy playing. I still love coming into training, I still love competing, so if I can carry on and there are opportunities to stay here or go somewhere else for another six months or 12 months then I’ll consider it. But if nothing comes up I’ll try and fly through the coaching badges and see what happens down that road.”

Gerrard is believed to want to keep playing at this stage in his career, but has said that he would never play for a Premier League side as he wouldn’t want to be on the visiting side to Anfield. A number of Championship sides are interested in approaching the Liverpool hero, but he may instead opt to gain coaching experience as part of Jurgen Klopp’s back-room team.

Another former Red is Rigobert Song, the Cameroonian defender who made 35 appearances between 1999 and 2000, who has fallen ill and is currently fighting for his life in hospital following a stroke, according to the Guardian. At just 40-years-old it has come as a major shock that the Chad national team coach has fallen unwell.

A host of current and former Liverpool players and staff have wished Song well and are hoping that he will make a full recovery, and TBR Football join them in wishing him a quick and full recovery.

An academy product is also in the headlines this week as he starred in England under-17s success at the Croatia Cup which saw an 8-1 thrashing of Germany on the way. Rhian Brewster, aged just 16, has scored five goals in three games in the competition and has caught the eye with his pace and power.

The former Chelsea youth product is promising and highly rated by youth coaches at Melwood, with Brewster the latest young talent who could be pushing for a place on the fringes of the Liverpool first team squad in the coming years. Remember the name.
