Steven Gerrard's Managerial Record Is Seriously Impressive

Steven Gerrard's Managerial Record Is Seriously Impressive

Ever since Steven Gerrard left Anfield, it felt almost inevitable that he would be back at some point in some sort of role.

Initially it was thought that he might return to the Premier League on loan during the American off season but when that didn't happen and Gerrard retired at the end of the MLS season, a coaching role became highly likely.

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

But he then stepped up to become the manager of the youth team and it's fair to say he's having a very successful time.

In 21 games in charge, Gerrard has tasted defeat just once, and his young Reds are currently top of the Under 18 Premier League table, as well as finishing as group winners in their UEFA Youth League group.

A late-show to beat Wolves 2-1 on Tuesday moved Liverpool's young guns to the summit of the table, continuing an impressive run of form.

Reflecting on the big win when speaking to the official Liverpool FC website, the 37-year old said:

Remembering Steven Gerrard's Incredible Performance In The 2006 FA Cup Final

"Credit to the lads, they have created an atmosphere and a spirit in the group where they are hard to beat, and the reaction and response to going a goal down was superb.

"They showed unbelievable character to come back, not just to equalise but to go on and win it in the way we did, the players deserve every single bit of credit.

"I thought my performance today was poor and I got certain things wrong as the game went on but the players bailed me out and I thought they were superb."

It's certainly been a been a very promising start to Gerrard's managerial career and though he's pleased with the six months he's had in the job, he's still striving for more.

"I've said to the staff and players that we all have to look at ourselves and what we have done well and what we could do better for the second part of the season.

"We will come back with the bit between our teeth and try and improve and try to push again.

"I've put a lot of pressure on the team and on the players to improve over the last four to five months, so they all need to be ready after Christmas to be ready and try and push for a successful season.

"So far, so good, and my half-term report is really positive. We are where we want to be but there's still a lot of hard work to be done if we want to make the season a success because you get nothing halfway through."
