Steven Gerrard is a Liverpool legend and will go down as one of their greatest ever players, but his journey at the club does not have to be finished yet.
Now a free agent after his LA Galaxy contract expired, Jurgen Klopp’s side may be able to offer him one last chance at the glory which eluded him his entire career.
Brendan Rodgers pushed him out of the club in an ill fated bid to stamp his own footprint on the team, having already stunned him by leaving him out of a big game against Real Madrid months earlier.
Gerrard’s last game was a disastrous 6-1 defeat to Stoke City, just over 12 months on from his infamous slip at Anfield against Chelsea which contributed to them missing out on the Premier League title.
These memories and Gerrard’s failed quest to win the trophy will be part of his legend, despite his heroics in the 2005 Champions League Final and 2006 FA Cup Final.
The midfielder was denied the chance to finish his Liverpool career on a high, but what if he was able to still do so?
Gerrard has been on good terms with Liverpool manager Klopp, with the German quoted in The Mirror last month stating he was ‘always welcome’.
Liverpool currently sit at the top of the Premier League, and a lack of European football will give them a real boost at a title tilt, as it did in 2013/14.
The Reds should offer him a contract until the end of the season, to contribute as a bit part player in their season, and help them win the trophy they dream of.
No player Liverpool would sign could bring the passion nor the desire to win the title and do it for Liverpool that Gerrard could, especially given that it would be his one last shot at a redemption of sorts.
