MK Dons gig too soon: Steven Gerrard

Press AssociationPress Association 23/11/2016

Former England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admitted he spoke to MK Dons about their vacant manager's role but felt it was too soon for him to take the job as speculation continues about his future.

Gerrard, who left the Los Angeles Galaxy earlier this month, held preliminary talks with the English third-tier club, who have been without a permanent manager since Karl Robinson was sacked last month.

Gerrard's future has been the subject of much talk as he continues to get mentioned in both a coaching and playing capacity at various clubs.

The 36-year-old was linked to Australian A-League side Melbourne Victory, but manager Kevin Muscat ruled that move out.

"I'm just taking a bit of time to consider what's next. Exciting times moving forward," Gerrard told BT Sport 2 when asked if he was weighing up his options.

Gerrard did confirm talks with MK Dons but said he was not ready for a move into management.

"I had a chat with the chairman. It's a very exciting job for someone else. It's a bit soon for me. But it is true, I did speak to them," he said.

He has been linked to a coaching return to Liverpool and also a potential role in the England set-up.

A reunion with former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers at Celtic has also been widely reported.
