Moyes tells Gerrard: Phone me if you want to play in Spain

The Scot has invited the Liverpool midfielder to join him in San Sebastian, while Southampton manager Ronald Koeman would also be interested in signing the Reds captain

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has opened the door to Steven Gerrard joining him at Real Sociedad in 2015.

The Scot endured a nightmare reign in charge of the Red Devils during the 2013-14 campaign but has since been given the opportunity to return to management with the Primera Division side.

And Moyes has now suggested that Gerrard, who announced his decision to leave Liverpool when his contract expires in the summer, is welcome to join him in Spain.

The 51-year-old told reporters: “He has had a great career for his club and for England and he will be very difficult to replace. If he ever wanted to come to play in Spain, he knows he can phone me.”

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman, meanwhile, has also thrown his hat in the ring and says that there would always be a place available for Gerrard if he wanted to join the Saints, though the ex-England international has indicated that he would rather not line up against the Reds next season.

He told reporters: “It is maybe a little bit strange to see Steven Gerrard out of the club Liverpool and, if he likes to continue, he can come [here].

“I am serious – if he likes to continue football in England, he can come. For Steven Gerrard, you have always a position for him.

“He is a fantastic football player, really at the top level in the midfield position and the captain of the club, with an impressive football career.”
