​Hamann: Gerrard return could prove too much of a distraction for Klopp

Dietmar Hamman has warned Jurgen Klopp that bringing Steven Gerrard back to Anfield may upset the rhythm of his squad.

Gerrard plans to return to Liverpool to train whilst the MLS season is finished but Hamman has warned Klopp that his presence could cause disruption in the camp.

It was revealed that Gerrard and Klopp have been in talks about Gerrard returning to train with the Reds, but Hamman has warned against this.

Speaking to TalkSPORT Hamman said: "We all know what Steven Gerrard did for the club, but even if he does train at the club, if a central midfielder gets injured, the first question at the press conference on a Friday will be: 'Are you going to give him [Gerrard] a contract?'

"And that's the last thing Klopp needs, constant speculation about Steven Gerrard. I'm not sure even training with them is a good idea."
