And while there has been much speculation about him linking up with his former club in some capacity, he says nothing is in the pipeline at the moment.

"People need to understand that Jurgen Klopp is his own man, he's got his own team of people around him, that he is very happy and content with," Gerrard said.

"Of course I've got a huge Liverpool connection and Liverpool is in my heart and always will be but there's nothing to really comment on.

"There's no future decision to work with Klopp, I get on really well with him, we're in contact but there's no job opportunity there at the moment."

Gerrard is midway through the MLS season with Galaxy and he wants to enjoy every moment he has left on the pitch.

He said: "There is absolutely nothing to say on my future beyond this MLS season at the moment.

"I know I'm in the twilight, I know I'm coming to the end pretty soon.

"I just want to try and enjoy every last moment really. The one thing I'm going to miss [is] walking on to the pitch.

"I'm going to miss that buzz very much because that's what I play the game for."
