Stunning news emerging from Ipswich Town as former England skipper in frame for manager’s role



Ipswich Town could spring a shock on the rest of the Championship with the news that former Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard is on a list of candidates the club are looking at to succeed Mick McCarthy.

According to the Sun, the Tractor Boys have identified the former Reds skipper as one of a number of potential new managers, and it is believed that the 37-year-old is open to a move into management despite having a comfortable media career with BT Sport at the moment.

Gerrard’s emergence as a contender for the job will shock many Ipswich fans, who have been accustomed to seeing the club go for steady and established names in the past, much like McCarthy.

However, it might well prove to be a breath of fresh air for the club, who are having to once again put plenty of emphasis on youth with funds at Portman Road hard to come by and the club failing to mount any sort of push for the playoffs this term.

Gerrard made over 100 appearances for England and is considered a future manager in many footballing circles. The chance to move into management with Ipswich could well be tempting for Gerrard, who will have little to lose at the Championship club.

Ipswich fans, what do you make of this news? Would you take Gerrard? Let us know
