Steven Gerrard has confirmed he has received a managerial approach from Saudi Arabia but will not be accepting the offer as things stand. The Liverpool legend’s next step into management has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks, with Sheffield Wednesday named as one of his potential destinations.

Gerrard has been out of work since being dismissed by Aston Villa in October last year following a poor start to the season. Unai Emery was appointed as his successor and oversaw an impressive turnaround at Villa Park, with his team recovering to finish strongly and qualify for the Europa Conference League.

Gerrard enjoyed success in his first managerial post at Rangers, preventing rivals Celtic from winning 10 straight league titles with their Scottish Premiership success in 2021. The 43-year-old has been linked to the vacant post at Hillsborough, following the surprise exit of Darren Moore this week.

Gerrard was quizzed on his future on Monday night while he was on punditry duties for England’s emphatic qualifier victory over North Macedonia at Old Trafford. Al-Ettifaq made an approach to the former Rangers and Villa boss, but it appears the ex-England international is keeping his options.

He told Channel 4: “A lot has been said in the media, a lot of it is not true. I was invited over there to look at a potential offer, which I did, and I have been analysing that over the last couple of days. But, as we stand right now, I won’t be taking that offer up.”
