Gerrard, who in February joined the club in a roving coaching role, will take over the U18s for Neil Critchley who will move up to command the U23s.
“It’s perfect that we can involve Steven,” said Klopp. “What a guy, he’s fantastic.
“I’ll do everything I can to make sure he gets all the information he needs. Because when you join a club, you have a big responsibility for the future, and the future of this club needs legends like Steven Gerrard in decisive positions”.
