Coaching footage of Steven Gerrard coaching his players at Al Ettifaq has left fans in stitches. After initially denying rumours of his appointment as the team’s manager, the Liverpool legend made a U-turn and officially took charge. He has certainly made an impression so far!
The recently surfaced footage captured Gerrard’s passionate coaching style, exclaiming, “One two, one two, do you want it? Tell me then, tell me then,” as he expressed frustration with his players’ lack of communication. Fans wasted no time flocking to social media to share their thoughts. Some were left scratching their heads, utterly perplexed by Gerrard’s approach, while others playfully likened it to their attempts at playing with their two-year-olds.
Language barriers came into play, as Gerrard’s thick Scouse accent proved challenging for the players to decipher. One fan hilariously quipped, “They’ve got no clue what a man with a thick Scouse accent is yelling at them, and I don’t blame them one bit.”
As discussions continue, fans eagerly await the unfolding of Gerrard’s coaching methods and their impact on Al Ettifaq’s performance. Will his unique style propel them up the league table? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure – laughter is guaranteed along the way.
In his official statement upon becoming manager, Gerrard expressed his excitement, saying, “I am really happy and really excited. I am a coach who likes to work tirelessly to ensure the team is competitive. I am looking forward to meeting the supporters, and so are my staff. Together, let’s be the support the team needs to move up the table – no pressure!”
As Steven Gerrard settles into his role as the manager of Al Ettifaq, it appears he’s looking to bring in familiar faces to bolster his squad. Reports suggest that Jordan Henderson is nearing a deal to join the Premier League side, adding valuable experience and leadership to the team.

Gerrard’s intentions to strengthen the squad with trusted signings suggest he wants to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact. By bringing in players familiar with his style, expectations and accent, he aims to create a cohesive and successful team.
