Cape Town - Steven Gerrard admits he has regrets about not having stayed a year longer at Liverpool so as to have played under current manager Jurgen Klopp.

The current Rangers boss left Anfield as a player in the summer of 2015 after Brendan Rodgers could only guide the Reds to a sixth-placed finish, after they had gone close to winning the Premier League title in 2014.

Rodgers was sacked in October 2015 with current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp replacing the outgoing Northern Irishman.

Klopp has since led Liverpool to Champions League glory at the end of last term, while they are already eight points clear of defending champions Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title.

"I always had little thoughts as I've gone along," Gerrard told Sky Sports. "Should I have stayed at Liverpool? Should I have signed a year extension? Maybe I might have been able to have that cameo under Jurgen Klopp as maybe a squad player.

"These things always cross my mind but, look, I made decisions. I am very proud of my Liverpool career; I am very proud of where I am up to now in my management. I want to give that my full focus and keep trying to learn and grow and improve and see where that journey takes me now.

"But, of course, you always have little moments – imagine if I'd stayed at Liverpool a bit longer and maybe I'd bumped into Jurgen Klopp, as someone who could maybe have given him 10-15 minutes off the bench.

"Of course, it has crossed my mind – I would have loved that."
