Klopp: Future of Liverpool needs legends like Steven Gerrard .

Steven Gerrard should become the next Liverpool boss when I eventually leave Anfield, says Jurgen Klopp.

The German is hoping the Reds' legend Gerrard, who will take charge of the club's Under-18s this summer, will succeed him as Liverpool manager someday.

In an interview with The Times, Klopp said: “I told him when I leave, or the club sack me, I don’t care of course who’ll be my successor, but I’d love that he’d be it.”

“It’s perfect that we can involve Steven,” Klopp added. "What a guy, he’s fantastic.

“I’ll do everything I can to make sure he gets all the information he needs. Because when you join a club, you have a big responsibility for the future, and the future of this club needs legends like Steven Gerrard in decisive positions."
