Liverpool hero Kuyt hopes to be part of Gerrard return to Anfield

Liverpool hero Dirk Kuyt admits he sees himself returning to Anfield as part of Steven Gerrard's staff.

Kop icon Gerrard's managerial stock has soared after leading Rangers to a first Scottish Premiership title in a decade.

And Kuyt, who has had a spell with Feyenoord as youth coach, has declared his ambition to be part of a managerial dream team at Anfield.

Kuyt told Ziggo Sport: "I think it would be great if Steven Gerrard went on to manage Liverpool.

"He is a child of the club, and he spent his entire playing career with Liverpool.

"Hopefully he will go on to experience similar levels of success as a manager.

"I get on very well with him, and we are still in contact with one another from time to time.

"If he wanted me to be his assistant I would like that a lot.

"In principle I see myself going on to work as a head coach, but there are always exceptions.

"And this would certainly be one of them."
