​Ex-Liverpool defender Skrtel: Gerrard will replace Klopp as manager

Former Liverpool centre-back Martin Skrtel believes club legend Steven Gerrard will take over from Jurgen Klopp in a few years.

Gerrard is currently managing Aston Villa in the Premier League, having led Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title.

Skertel, who played with Gerrard at the Anfield club, praised him in an interview with The Times.

He said: "At the moment we have Jurgen Klopp and he is the best man for the job.

"I see Stevie as the manager after because he's getting the experience now. He was in Glasgow [at Rangers] and now he's in Aston Villa.

"I hope he can do a good job there and then one day, when Jurgen or Liverpool decide to go a different way and they bring new people in, he will be the one.

"That would be the perfect way and a perfect step for the club and also for Stevie."
