The Independent claims, LA Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard has held telephonic conversation with newly appointed Reds manager Jurgen Klopp. The duo have spoken to each other numerous times since last month.
“The manager is now convinced that Gerrard’s presence will help define the standards of professionalism he expects around Melwood, Liverpool’s training ground,” according to the report.
However, The MLS outfit LA Galaxy are not willing to sanction a loan deal and could demand a transfer fee if Klopp want him at the Anfield.
Following the report, Liverpool supporters took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on rumours linking Steven Gerrard to the Merseyside club.
Seriously Gerrard, just stay gone. The club is better off without you anywhere near it for a long time #LFC

Take sentiment out of it, what is the actual point in bringing Steven Gerrard back to Liverpool? How long until he undermines Klopp? #LFC

Always respect and admire Gerrard. But dont see how his ability level at this stage of his career would be helpful in moving #LFC forward.

Gerrard coming back in a playing role would be very surprising. Would hope it would be a very limited role with focus on coaching. #LFC

Jesus I don’t know if my heart can take these stories of Gerrard possibly returning to #LFC.
