Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has a chance to take over as manager of Aston Villa in Poland

After being fired from Aston Vil­la, Steven Ger­rard is being con­sid­ered for a sur­prise new home.

The for­mer Liv­er­pool play­er has been approached by the Pol­ish nation­al team to replace Čes­law Miśniewicz.

Ger­rard has done well in his first man­age­r­i­al role, lead­ing Rangers to their first Scot­tish title since 2011.

How­ev­er, he had less suc­cess after leav­ing Ibrox to join Aston Vil­la, fin­ish­ing 14th after a poor start to the sea­son and being sacked in October.

The for­mer Eng­land star appears to be seri­ous­ly con­sid­er­ing an offer from Poland.

The Pol­ish FA are pre­pared to pay Ger­rard an astro­nom­i­cal salary and hope the increased spon­sor­ship rev­enue the for­mer mid­field icon will bring will help him become self-sufficient.

Addi­tion­al­ly, Gareth South­gate’s deci­sion to stay in Eng­land has giv­en Poland a boost as the Three Lions man­ag­er is out of reach until at least next summer.

If Ger­rard takes over as Poland man­ag­er, he will join the ranks of two play­ers who have man­aged at Vil­la Park: Jan Bednarek and Mat­ty Cash.

In 2021, Cash, who switched inter­na­tion­al alle­giance from Eng­land, was tak­en aback by being able to play in Poland because his grand­fa­ther was from Gdansk.

Poland had their sta­tis­ti­cal­ly best World Cup since Qatar in 1982, reach­ing the last 16 but los­ing to France.

How­ev­er, the result was not enough to save Mišnich, who was dis­gust­ed by the fans with his ultra-defen­sive football.

Star strik­er Robert Lewandows­ki also crit­i­cized that “the joy of the game is nec­es­sary”. It will con­tin­ue to be an impor­tant fac­tor in the near future.”

Sev­er­al coach­es are being pur­sued for the head coach­ing posi­tion in Pol­ish reports.

Among them are Rober­to Mar­tinez, who has already signed for Por­tu­gal, Herve Renard, the man­ag­er of Sau­di Ara­bia, and for­mer Swiss inter­na­tion­al Vladimir Petkovic.
