For fans of Steven Gerrard and Liverpool, it is good to see him back in action, this time as a manager in the Premier League after his previous exploits – though, most persons will remember the period when he slipped against Chelsea in the game at Anfield which they lost 2-0 in the race to win the domestic title in 2013/2014.

While Gerrard was with the Gers, he won the Scottish Premiership in 2020/2021. They went through the entire campaign unbeaten, while leading the team to a record-breaking 55th league title – disposing of eternal rivals Celtic Football Club.

While the task at Aston Villa will be the proper litmus test, Gerrard can take solace in the fact that former Premier League players have done well in management. For example, Frank Lampard did well at former club Chelsea in his first campaign before being dismissed in the following season. Currently, former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has shown he can cut it at the top with Crystal Palace.
Gerrard must apply himself to the job in hand at Aston Villa. He should learn from the sacked Dean Smith and chart a proper course to achieve the objectives of the club’s owners. He has a decent squad capable of finishing in the top half of the league, and even surprised critics by earning a slot in European competition. But until then, welcome to the Premier League Steven Gerrard!
