Steven Gerrard will not take over at Tottenham, claims Peter Crouch
Tottenham are on the lookout for a new manager after Jose Mourinho was let go of by the club last month. Ex-midfielder Ryan Mason has been placed in charge on an interim basis till the end of the season as the club continues to scour for a full-time replacement for the Portuguese tacticians.
Among the names that have come up in conversations over who could become the next Tottenham boss, Steven Gerard’s name has featured prominently. Since taking over the reins at Rangers in 2018, the former Liverpool captain has done a fine job, and even managed to lead the Gers to their first Scottish Premiership title in eleven years this term.
So, it is only natural that Gerrard has his admirers among the Tottenham decision-makers. However, Crouch, while hailing the English manager’s body of work, has claimed that is is not possible that Spurs can sign him as Gerrard would only want to manage Liverpool in the Premier League.
“Steven’s stock is rising and the way he has overseen the renaissance of Rangers is outstanding. He is going to be an outstanding manager and if I was running Tottenham, I would absolutely be interested in a man of his calibre.
“But could you see Steven Gerrard managing anyone in the Premier League other than Liverpool? No. Nor can I. When Steven returns to England, it will be to take over from Jurgen Klopp. I really don’t see it any other way.”

A one-club man in the Premier League during his playing career, Gerrard is very much likely to take over at Liverpool a manager someday. Whether he would be willing to any other club before that will be interesting to see.
