Liverpool wants Gerrard to return next year
Liverpool chief executive, Ian Ayre, has said that he is hoping that current captain Steven Gerrard will be able to return to the club on a loan deal from Los Angeles Galaxy next year.
Gerrard announced last week that he would be leaving Anfield at the end of the current season, after not receiving a new contract from the club, and that he would be moving to the Major League Soccer (MLS) champions.
However, Ayre believes that the midfielder might be able to be persuaded to return to Liverpool on a temporary loan during the MLS off-season.
"I've said openly to Steven and his representatives, as have Brendan and the owners, that we see Steven as part of the family," he said.
"The fact that he's leaving at the end of the season doesn't mean it's the last we'll see of him at Liverpool. What that means, the details aren't known yet, but we will keep a regular dialogue with him and I hope we will see him here again in the long term,” he added.
