Former England and Liverpool FC midfielder, Steven Gerrard, has been appointed as the new manager of Saudi Pro League club Al Ettifaq.
Gerrard’s appointment as the new manager of the Saudi Pro League club was confirmed on Monday.
The appointment was confirmed in a post on the club’s official Twitter handle, @Ettifaq_EN.
The post reads: “Where legends are found, We’re thrilled to announce Steven Gerrard is our new head coach.”
The club in another tweet described Gerrard as one that is used to silverware, noting that he is legend who “brings a glorious history and exciting future to Ettifaq.”
The former Aston Villa coach was pictured putting pen to paper with the club’s president, Khalid Al Dabal.
Gerrard kickstarted his managerial career as a Youth coach at Liverpool Fc before moving to Scottish Premier League side, Rangers – where he won his first trophy as a manager.
Gerrard, 43, led Ranger to win the Scottish Premier League, his first trophy as a manager. The Liverpool legend also had a stint at Aston Villa before he was sacked, after securing only two wins in the club’s first 12 league matches.
