Liverpool legends ​Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher could both be offered permanent positions back at the club, according to reports in the Telegraph.

The paper claims that the club's hierarchy are ready to make amends for previous mistakes and would be keen to add one of the legendary figures to the backroom staff.

Gerrard left Merseyside in favour of a move to LA Galaxy at the end of last season while Carragher is currently working as a pundit for Sky Sports.

Liverpool went into the Merseyside Derby without any local players in the side and it believed that Fenway Sports Group could make big changes following the exit of Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers was sacked as the Liverpool manager on Sunday evening, with former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp the favourite to replace him at Anfield.
