Check Out “Danny Murphy was surprised Steven Gerrard declined a Saudi Arabian position” On Monday, Gerrard disclosed that he was summoned to the Middle East by Saudi Pro League team Al-Ettifaq, who made the Reds icon an offer to become their next manager. Al-Ettifaq is a member of the Saudi Professional Football League.

After giving it some thought for a few days, the 43-year-old individual, who has been unemployed since Aston Villa fired him in October, made the decision not to pursue the opportunity.

Murphy is pleased that he did, and he speculated that it may be because there is’something in the pipeline’ for Gerrard in England as he works toward making his way back to the bench.

Murphy stated to talkSPORT, “If I’m being completely honest, I was a little bit surprised.”

“While he was over there, I believed that the financial side of it and the way that they would have made him feel welcome and loved, I thought he would get hooked in. I feared that he might get reeled in.

However, he has demonstrated some bravery and substance.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Stevie throughout the course of his life, it’s that he loves football, he loves a good challenge, and he likes doing his best to disprove other people’s assumptions about him.

“He did that journey amazingly well as a footballer, and as a manager he took some steps forward, and then he’s gone backwards.” — “He did that journey amazingly well as a footballer.”

Therefore, he is going to have to face a difficulty that perhaps he didn’t imagine he would have to face when he first started flying at Rangers.

“Perhaps there’s something in the works that we weren’t aware of, and he’s going to challenge himself to do that, which I think will be beneficial to him in the long run.”
