Steven Gerrard has “begun discussions” with the Polish Football Association about becoming their next manager..
The Liverpool legend was fired by Aston Villa in October after their 3-0 loss to Fulham. He was let go by the Midlanders after the club was relegated to 17th place after only two Premier League victories in ten games.
Despite his obvious struggles to get the best out of Villa, and despite spending more than £100 million in the transfer window, Gerrard’s next stint in charge may not be far off.
The Poland Football Federation has contacted Gerrard in recent weeks, according to the Polish outlet Meczyki..
Former manager Czeslaw Michniewicz resigned after the Eastern Europeans were eliminated from the World Cup in the knockout stages.
They snuck out of a group that included Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and eventual winners Argentina, but were knocked out in the Round of 16 by tournament runners-up France.
Gerrard, on the other hand, could very well be the man in charge of the Eastern European behemoths. According to reports in Poland, the ex-Rangers manager is also considering the offer..
Former Belgium manager Roberto Martinez was also linked with Poland, but he was recently named as Fernando Santos’ replacement at Portugal..
Saudi manager Herve Renard, the only manager to defeat Argentina in the World Cup, has also been mentioned, and Vladimir Petkovic and Paulo Bento are also thought to be in the running.
The next president of Poland will be in charge of ensuring qualification for the 2024 European Championships in Germany. If the Eagles are to compete, they must first pass through Albania, the Faroe Islands, Moldova, and the Czech Republic..
