Steven Gerrard appointed manager of Saudi Arabian club

Steven Gerrard, a former England player, has been named manager of Saudi Pro League club Al Ettifaq.

Gerrard was named manager of the Saudi Pro League club on Monday.

The club announced the appointment on its official Twitter account, @Ettifaq_EN.

The post reads: “Where legends are found, We’re thrilled to announce Steven Gerrard is our new head coach.”

Another Twitter post by the club stated that Gerrard is no stranger to silverware, adding that he is a legend who “brings a glorious history and exciting future to Ettifaq.”

The new manager was seen putting pen on paper with the club’s president, Khalid Al Dabal.


Gerrard started his managerial career as a Youth coach at his former club side, Liverpool FC.

He later went on to win the Scottish Premier League for Rangers; 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.

Gerrard’s new club side will face competition for domestic and continental titles from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, and Al-Ittihad teammates; Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, and new arrival, Jota.
