Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard living together ahead of taking Leeds job

Can you fit Gerrard and Lampard into the same technical area? We may be about to find out.

Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are renting an Airbnb in Leeds city centre ahead of a sensational return to management.

Paddy Power News can exclusively reveal that the former England midfield duo are close to agreeing to become the new dream team at the helm of Leeds United.

“I can confirm that two gentleman have put down a three-month deposit on my property” the proprietor told us. “But I’m not prepared to say anything else at this moment other than the cockney sounding one has got the bigger bedroom.”

We tracked down a neighbour who told us that “Something is definitely happening. This morning I looked out of the bedroom window and there were cones scattered all over next door’s garden.

“There were also couple of pairs of dirty boots on the front door step.

A pal of Lampard’s explained to us that Frank is taking a leaf out of his uncle Harry Redknapp’s book; “I was round there a couple of nights ago and they had all the condiments out on the kitchen table as they talked tactics.

“Patrick Bamford was the HP Sauce bottle whilst (Luke) Ayling and (Junior) Firpo were the salt and pepper pots. It was fascinating to watch.”

We contacted the Elland Road club this morning, but they were remaining coy about the situation. One insider was prepared to come forward however, telling us that; “We are exploring several avenues at this moment. That’s all I can really confirm at present.

“One thing we can categorically state however, is that Sam Allardyce is NOT on our shortlist despite the fact that he was seen drinking pints of Blue Nun at a city centre Weatherspoons the other night.”

A close associate of Stevie G’s was able to shed a little more light on developments, when he told Paddy Power News that; “Stevie has always been hurt by so called experts claiming that he and Frank could never play together for England because they were too similar.

“He’s determined to prove critics wrong now because he realises that they are both proven crap managers so there won’t be a problem.

“He’s also had experience playing under a managerial duo at Liverpool of course, when Roy (Evans) and Gerard (Houllier) were in charge, so he fully understands that one of them will end up having to leave after a couple of months.”
