LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Nov 18 – Steven Gerrard is in shock talks with English third division side MK Dons over becoming their new manager.

Gerrard confirmed earlier this week that he will leave MLS outfit LA Galaxy when his contract expires next month and said he was exploring options both “on and off the pitch”.

The 36-year-old had been tipped to make a return to Liverpool in a coaching capacity, but contact has been made over the managerial vacancy at struggling MK Dons.

The League One outfit have been exploring a number of options after sacking manager Karl Robinson last month, and Gerrard is among the names on their shortlist.

Gerrard is currently pursuing his UEFA A licence and has previously expressed his eagerness to move into coaching after retiring as a player.

Despite lying 21st in League One, MK Dons do have a history of offering high-profile players a first opportunity in management after ex-Chelsea midfielder Roberto Di Matteo and former England international Paul Ince both took their first jobs in the dug-out there.

The club have also enjoyed success with their academy system after Dele Alli came through the ranks before moving to Spurs.
