Pundit reveals burning question Klopp will ask Gerrard to improve Liverpool

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will seek particular pieces of advice from new Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard to improve his own team, according to one pundit.

The Premier League has enjoyed several standout arrivals in its dugouts since Klopp took charge of the Reds in 2015. Indeed, Pep Guardiola has led Manchester City impressively, while Thomas Tuchel has developed Chelsea.

Antonio Conte is also back in the English top flight and while Gerrard may not have won the same number of titles as those managers, he remains a standout name.

He won the Scottish Premiership with Rangers last season but now wants to try his luck as a manager in the Premier League after starring for Liverpool as a player.

Gerrard travels to Anfield with his Villa side in December, which will prove a historic moment. However, former Premier League striker Kevin Phillips believes that Klopp will speak more often to his managerial counterpart.

Indeed, he claimed that the Liverpool boss will seek advice about his midfield as he looks to improve his team.

“I would imagine they are friends,” Phillips told Football Insider.

“They will not discuss each other’s tactics and team selection when they play each other but I cannot see why they wouldn’t otherwise.

“Everyone is out there to achieve. You would never not give advice just because you are managing in the same league.

“I’m sure they will continue to talk. It is inevitable that Gerrard will become Liverpool manager at some point. I’m certain they will be helping each other. They’ll be speaking to each other throughout the season and Aston Villa will benefit.

Klopp’s midfield has proved the most interchangeable and rotatable part of his Liverpool team. He has several options at his disposal, including Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho.
