Steven Gerrard is nominated to be Premier League coach of the month just weeks after his arrival.
It is never easy to take over a club during the season, especially for a young coach like Steven gerrard. The ancient legend of Liverpool had in fact only resulted in Glasgow rangers, with whom he won the Scottish Championship in 2021.

On November 11, he was named the new Villans coach to replace Dean henderson. The objective was then to straighten out a team then 16th in the Premier League, and for the moment, it is rather successful. With two wins in his first two matches, the former England player got his team back on track by ending a five-game losing streak.
Even Aston Villa’s first loss under Gerrard will have been encouraging, a 2-1 setback against Manchester city which still portends good things for the club. Performances that allowed the native of Whiston to be among the nominees for the title of Coach of the Month for November in the Premier League.

And Gerrard is rather well surrounded since the Premier League announced this Friday the three nominees for the title of coach of the month, and these are Jürgen Klopp and Pep guardiola, or the winners of the last 4 editions of the English championship, who are the other two nominees.
A rather promising start for the young English coach.
