EPL: Steven Gerrard in shock move to coach another English club


Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard is set for a shock move to coach another English club, Wigan Athletic.

According to Birmingham Mail, Gerrard has been linked with the managerial vacancy at the EFL Championship outfit.

Gerrard was sacked by Premier League club Aston Villa in October this year after the Villains’ poor run of form left them languishing just outside the bottom three in the Premier League table.

Aston Villa suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss to Fulham at Craven Cottage, which ultimately spelt the end of Gerrard’s time in charge at Villa Park.

Gerrard, a former Rangers manager, left Aston Villa having overseen 13 victories, eight draws, and 19 losses in 40 appearances.

However, the former England captain could be back in the dugout shortly and is being touted as a shock candidate to replace Leam Richardson at Wigan Athletic.

Wigan dismissed Richardson on 10 November after an eight-game losing streak.

They currently sit in 22nd position in the Championship table with just six wins in 21 fixtures.
