Fri 19 November 2021 | 13:44

There have been talks for a long time about Steven Gerrard and his coaching at Liverpool, and now with his arrival in the Premier League and Aston Villa, rumors about him sitting on the Liverpool bench have become more common than ever.

However, The Reds boss Jürgen Klopp is not interested in talking about long-term projects and prefers to focus on his current plans. His contract at Anfield expires in 2024.

Asked about his future and his replacement at

Liverpool

, Klopp said: “

Wow! I thought Stevie said some nice things, smart things, made sure it was about Villa and Gerrard

.

“I don't have to think about [my future], thank God. We are in the middle of the season. No other managers gets asked so often about two or three years away.”

Klopp added: “

It's over when it's over, but it's far away from being over, so let's focus on that

.”

Klopp hopes to gain all three crucial points against

Arsenal

on Saturday at Anfield. He will however be without several stars.

Naby Keita

, Curtis Jones and James Milner are all missing, with Klopp saying

:

<em>

“Curtis we take it day by day

.

“Harvey [Elliott] is doing really well but there is some time between now and when he can start again. Joe Gomez is doing well, Bobby [Firmino] doing well, needs time.”

Klopp went on to say of Jordan Henderson, Andy Robertson and

Sadio Mane

, who have all been nursing knocks:

“So, Hendo and Robbo not trained with team yet, recovery, rehab stuff. Pretty close, a late decision

.

“Sadio is good. Fabinho came back late [from Brazil] and did a recovery session. I hope he can train today, that's the plan.”
