EPL: What Jurgen Klopp told me after Aston Villa appointment – Gerrard.. Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard has made open a message from Jurgen Klopp to him after he was appointed the manager of Aston Villa.
Gerrard said Klopp had promised a ‘big hug’ from Liverpool.
The former England midfielder took over as the new Villa manager last week and will face Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
Aston Villa will play Liverpool on 11 December and Gerrard revealed what Klopp had said to him after hearing of his new role.
“I’ve been in touch with Klopp, I bump into him when he walks his dogs,’ Gerrard said at a press conference on Thursday.
“He sent me a message saying he is ‘looking forward to a big hug on the side’ when Villa plays Liverpool next month.’
It was Gerrard’s success at Rangers that led him to the Aston Villa job and many expect him to eventually succeed Klopp as Reds boss when the German’s current contract expires in 2024.
