England coach Steven Gerrard Possibly getting a new job in the Turkish league with Trabzonspor if the election of the club’s new president goes as expected.

Trabzonspor Turkish Super League champions last season Suffering a drop in form this season until Abdullah Afshi decided to resign from his position as head coach on March 8. Turkish media Karar reports that Trabzonspor is electing a new club ufabet president on March 25-26. 

Will serve as interim president until that time Doane, one of the candidates for Trabzonspor’s chairmanship, met Gerrard in Istanbul. Expected to negotiate various agreements about taking on the role of a new head coach. 

Which, if the election results end in a victory for Doan, will likely result in the former England midfielder becoming the club’s new manager. Gerrard, 42, took charge of Aston Villa in November 2021 but spent just 11 months in charge, was sacked on October 20, 2022 and has been out of work ever since. Trabzonspor won the Turkish top league last season. But this season, the form has dropped. Currently ranked 6th until Ashchi decides to resign.

He would go on to stay in Glasgow for several years, winning the Scottish Premiership in 2021 without losing a single game, before taking up the vacant role at Villa park alongside his assistant Gary McAllister.

But he managed just under two seasons at the Premier League side, with Villa dropping to 17th in the table after conceding six of their opening 11 matches. 

Since then some, including Jurgen Klopp, have tipped Gerrard to bounce back, and it appears it may not be too long before we see him back in management.
