Aston Villa head coach Steven Gerrard believes that the team should be playing in European competitions. He also revealed that his current job is not a stepping stone to becoming the Liverpool manager. Gerrard said he was extremely proud to be a manager in the Premier League and was an honour to take up the role. Gerrard will manage his first game in the Premier League against Norwich, looking to end a run of five successive defeats.
“I think everyone knows all around the world what Liverpool means to me but my focus is very much on Aston Villa. I’ve said that I am all-in and I can promise our supporters that that’s the case.” Aston Villa head coach Steven Gerrard said. “I think first and foremost it’s an extremely proud moment from a personal point of you, it’s a real honour to be the manager of this football club.”
“You will never hear me say that it is a ‘stepping stone’ [to managing Liverpool]. For me, I am really proud and honoured to be in this position.” he added. “I am all-in. I will give this job everything that it needs for it to be a success. I will be 100 per cent committed and I don’t think there’s anything wrong in football to have dreams and aspirations. They have got a world-class coach who they are very happy with. If he was to sign a lifetime deal right now, I would be very happy for them and him.”
