Having called time on his glittering 19-year career in 2016, Steven Gerrard is working towards becoming a manager in football.

The Liverpool hero is doing his coaching badges and looking to obtain a UEFA A coaching licence in the near future.

After turning down the managerial role at MK Dons and a chance to continue his playing career at AC Milan, Gerrard took on a coaching role in the club's youth side in February, with his duty being to help the up and coming youngsters in the ranks at the club.

Recent reports have come in that the 36-year-old is to take up an even more important role within the club's academy set-up, as he is in line to become Under 18's boss next season - bringing him a step closer to potentially going on to manager Liverpool at some point down the line.

However, if you thought that you had seen the last of Gerrard in a Liverpool shirt, think again.

Not too long ago, Gerrard recently turned out and proved he still had it in a legends game that pitted Liverpool and Real Madrid greats against one another, but this time he's actually going to be playing with the current crop of first-team stars.

Mere days after the Premier League season comes to an end, Liverpool will travel to Australia to play A-League side Sydney FC to mark their 12th anniversary as a football club.

The full first-team will be available for the game on May 24, though they will be joined by three Liverpool heroes.

Steve McManaman, Daniel Agger, and of course Steven Gerrard will all take part in the fixture.

Gerrard, who ended his stint with Liverpool in defeat when the Reds were thumped 6-1 by Liverpool at the end of the 2014/15 season, is understandable ecstatic about the opportunity to play for his beloved Liverpool once more.

He said:

"It will be an honour to pull on the red shirt and play football with an outstanding squad and former team-mates - this is what Liverpool is all about, celebrating the family that has been around for 125 years.

"Our fans in Australia always give us a warm welcome, so it'll be a great feeling to see the ANZ Stadium turn red on May 24."

A real treat for the Aussie fans in attendance.
