Phil Thompson: Steven Gerrard will land another Premier League job despite Aston Villa sacking

More big opinions from the big man exclusively here at Paddy Power News.

I’m not surprised Steven Gerrard’s no longer in charge of Aston Villa. The Fulham defeat in the week was win or bust and it didn’t go Villa’s way, although the sending off didn’t help!

NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?

He was living on the edge and he needed a massive result to keep his job. Once the fans turn – like they did at Villa – it’s very hard to get them back on board.

Steven is a good manager. What he did at Rangers was really impressive. There will be plenty more jobs coming up in the Premier League come December and January.

There will always be that opportunity for Gerrard to take over at Anfield.

There will be a lot of teams who will be keen to get Steven as their next manager. He won’t take too long out because if you take a while out of the game, you’re forgotten about.

This Villa situation will slightly affect his chances of replacing Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool but there will always be that opportunity for him to take over at Anfield because of his Liverpool history.

We’ve got Pep Lijnders there who could be the next Liverpool manager after Klopp but Steven could land the role in the future.

Everyone wanted the same with Alan Shearer at Newcastle and if it happens, hopefully it’s the right time.
