The latest news, views and transfer rumours from Liverpool from Liverpool Echo
As many of the top clubs across Europe are currently run by former players, it is inevitable to wonder whether Steven Gerrard will take over the manager’s office in Anfield when Klopp’s time with Liverpool comes to an end.
Nevertheless, there is always speculation about who will be the next manager at one of the top clubs, and the Reds are no different.
Jurgen Klopp is a man of his word, and since his contract in Liverpool runs for another four years, there is little chance that he will leave the club early.
And Gerrard certainly does an impressive job with the Rangers, as this excellent analysis by Colin Millar shows.
However, the club are ready to move to their new, state-of-the-art facility in Kirkby and should start work there during next month’s international break.
All of Liverpool’s major teams in the club’s history have trained and prepared for matches at Melwood.
Existing club partners AXA will sponsor the new facility, which will be known as the AXA Training Center. Liverpool’s chairman has spoken about the deal.
“We are delighted to have AXA on board as we begin this new chapter in the club and are proud to develop our relationship with a brand that shares our common values and aspirations both on and off the pitch,” he said.

It’s been more than a week since the controversial Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, where Everton’s goalkeeper Jordan Pickford beat Virgil van Dijk with a horrendous challenge.
Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho attended yesterday’s debate to share his thoughts on the derby incident as well as that between Manchester City and Porto in the Champions League.
But the excitement over the VAR’s inaction on that day shows no sign of abating.
Mourinhos other comments on the standard of refereeing are also worth reading.
“If the referee makes this mistake, everyone understands, because the game is played at 100 miles per hour, but with the VAR, how can this VAR make this mistake? And the situation of Pickford is the same for me. It’s the VAR, not the referee,” he said.
