Klopp is delighted to be working alongside Gerrard in some capacity, claiming that the Liverpool legend has what it takes to one day succeed him in the first-team dugout.
"It's perfect that we can involve Steven," he told The Times. "What a guy, he's fantastic. He was one of the world's best footballers ever. We had him last winter when he had a break in the USA (from former club LA Galaxy) and he had a few sessions with us, a few shooting sessions, and I thought 'what is that'? His shooting. Unbelievable.
"I told him when I leave, or the club sack me, I don't care of course who'll be my successor, but I'd love that he'd be it. I'll do everything I can to make sure he gets all the information he needs. Because, when you join a club you have a big responsibility for the future, and the future of this club needs legends like Steven Gerrard in decisive positions.
"He gave the club a lot and now we can give him the best education in this specific part he wants to work in, hopefully for the rest of his life."
Gerrard won eight major trophies during his playing career, including the Champions League and two FA Cups at Liverpool.
