Steven Gerrard has admitted he held talks with MK Dons about their vacant manager’s role but felt it was too soon for him to take the job.
Gerrard, who left the Los Angeles Galaxy earlier this month, held preliminary talks with the League One club, who have been without a permanent manager since Karl Robinson was axed in October.
“I’m just taking a bit of time to consider what’s next. Exciting times moving forward,” Gerrard told BT Sport when asked if he was weighing up his options.
“I spoke to them,” the 36-year-old for Liverpool midfielder said. “I had a chat with the chairman. It’s a very exciting job for someone else. It’s a bit soon for me. But it is true, I did speak to them.”
Gerrard’s has been linked to a coaching return to Liverpool and also a potential role in the England set-up.
A return to Anfield could now be on the cards with Jurgen Klopp always saying he would welcome Gerrard back. It is understood that the club are ready to hold informal talks about their star player returning.
His former Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers recently ruled out a reunion with the player at Celtic.
Gerrard has also been linked to Australian A-League side Melbourne Victory, but their boss Kevin Muscat ruled out that move.
