Steven Gerrard is BACK at Liverpool… and Jurgen Klopp is delighted to have him

first_imgJurgen Klopp believes having Steven Gerrard back at Melwood is good for the Liverpool dressing room.The legendary former skipper, who ended his 17-year spell at Anfield to join LA Galaxy in the summer, is training with his old side to maintain his fitness levels following the end of the MLS season.Klopp has laughed off suggestions Gerrard could rejoin the club on loan, but the German believes the 35-year-old’s presence at the training ground will boost his squad.Asked about Gerrard’s arrival at Melwood ahead of Wednesday’s League Cup quarter-final clash with Southampton, the German joked: “He won’t play! But he was in good shape.“I said to the team before training, when he was with us in the dressing room, it’s completely normal. It should always be like this.“If you are a player like Steven Gerrard in Liverpool then the doors have to be open always – that’s how it is at the moment. It’s an important sign for all players.“If you behave like him in the club, if you always give everything you have, then it’s easy to come back and that’s how it is at the moment. It’s a good situation.“He was a very important player and at this moment he is a very important player because he is in training.“Everybody had a smile on their faces when they saw Stevie. It’s good to have him here. We hope we can help him and he can help us for sure only with being in the dressing room – it’s good.” 1 Steven Gerrard last_img read more
