Ex-England and Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard could be the next manager of MK Dons as he has been in contact with the management over the vacant manager’s role.
It is not clear whether the 36-year-old midfielder, who is set to leave MLS side LA Galaxy in December, will retire from playing should he land the role.
He would succeed Karl Robinson at MK Dons, who are 21st in League One.
Gerrard, England’s fourth most-capped player, left Anfield in 2015 after 17 years in the first team, playing 710 times and winning eight major trophies.
MK Dons are exploring a number of opportunities, and Gerrard is understood to be one of numerous candidates.
Since announcing he is to leave the United States before the end of the year, Gerrard has been linked with moves to both Celtic and Newcastle United.
He has said he has “options on and off the pitch”, and former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson stated the Reds should re-sign him as a player-coach.
Gerrard is currently pursuing his UEFA A coaching licence – the second-highest qualification offered.
