Steven Gerrard Explains Why He’s Risking a Return to the Premier League

Steven Gerrard has given his reasons for jumping at the chance to take another coaching “risk” at Aston Villa. After transfer rumours led to a football transfer, Steven Gerrard explains why he’s risking a return to the Premier League.

The Liverpool legend, per himself, is delighted to be back in the Premier League at a club that “sells itself”.

The former England captain had been cutting his managerial teeth at Old Firm giants Rangers, the giants from Scotland. And it’s with some level of success – after all, he secured them a Scottish Premiership title at Ibrox in 2020-21.

Gerrard had previously spent time working in the youth system at Anfield but nonetheless, the native’s Merseyside return is moot.

That’s not so bad because, anyway, for now, his focus is locked on proving a point in the West Midlands. He has just taken up the reigns at another Premier League club – Aston Villa.

So, in talked with Aston Villa’s official website and, Gerrard has said: “For me, it was about starting from the beginning and putting the blocks in place; really learning from the start, going away from the cameras initially, taking the youth team at Liverpool, they were a big support to me.

“That gave me a couple of years of real pitch experience, to get comfortable preparing sessions, delivering sessions and leading the team.

“And then obviously the Rangers opportunity came, which was really big, again, another iconic club

“And for me, I like a challenge, I like a risk, and it’s something I’m really looking forward to getting in to.

“I think this club will suit me because I know the fans are very passionate. I know there’s a demand and a pressure here to win, that’s something I’ve lived with since I was 17-18 years of age.

“So, for me, it’s about making everyone come together and be unified, and I believe we can do exciting things together.”
