One topic of discussion was Tottenham’s ongoing search for a new permanent manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho last month.
Would you like Gerrard as Spurs manager?
No, we can be doing better
Yes, he is just what we need
Maw highlighted one name which he believes should at least be in the running for the permanent role with the north London club, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard.
Although Maw believes Gerrard has done a good enough job with the Gers to warrant being considered for the Spurs job, he was also aware of the possible issues that may cause for a potential return to Anfield.
He said: “Gerrard probably should be in that conversation, shouldn’t he? I mean, he’s done like a reasonably good job. I guess for someone like that he might because he’s obviously desperate to manage Liverpool. Presumably, Spurs may be kind of at the level where it makes it difficult to then manage Liverpool? Maybe.

“If you do a good job at Spurs and then you’re in a Champions League and then suddenly do how do you kind of then hop over to manage a Liverpool, kind of feels like that might be slightly awkward.
“There’s not too many sort of managerial switches between big clubs in England are there?”
TIF Thoughts on Maw’s comments…
According to reports, Daniel Levy is looking for a young manager who can provide an attacking influence on the Spurs side.
Gerrard has guided Rangers back to the top of Scottish football and dethroned their city rivals, however, as Maw mentioned it could prove detrimental to his ambitions to become Liverpool manager if he was to join Spurs.
Should he join Spurs and prove not to be a success then surely it would put his dream move back to Anfield under question and would Gerrard be willing to put that potential homecoming at risk?
