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.
