Steven Gerrard is being touted for a coaching role with the FA

The former Chelsea and Liverpool stars were part of the country’s underwhelming ‘golden generation’.

The Sun add that interim boss Gareth Southgate has already approved the approach and is keen for the pair to work with the likes of Eric Dier, Dele Alli and John Stones.

Fellow MLS star Ashley Cole has also been approached for the scheme.

England’s next game is against Scotland on November 11 for their Group F World Cup qualifier at Wembley.
