Mourinho almost persuaded him to join Chelsea in 2004 and 2005 â a period when he led the Blues to two Premier League titles and a League Cup.
Now the Anfield skipper has confirmed: âI would like to play for Mourinho, the Special One.â
Despite winning a Champions League trophy, a UEFA Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups in his 14 years at Liverpool, Gerrard still does not possess an elusive Premier League winnerâs medal.
The lack of major honours at Anfield has often led to interest in the England skipper from some of Europeâs most successful clubs.
But the Kop idol remained loyal to his boyhood team.
When asked about the interest from Mourinho when he was Chelsea boss, Gerrard said: âLiverpool werenât really challenging at the time, so there was something to think about.
âBut I ended up saying ânoâ and a year later I said ânoâ again. But he came back when he arrived at Real Madrid two years ago.
âBut that has never been me and, again, it just wasnât going to happen.â
