The LA Galaxy midfielder admitted he would still be at Liverpool today if the Merseysiders gave him a player-coach role when they offered him a new deal.

The 35-year-old said he would have stayed on at his hometown club in a partial coaching capacity if the club allowed him too.

"What would have kept me at Liverpool into this season was the chance of shadowing Brendan Rodgers and his staff, as well as playing," he told the Daily Mail.

"Those ideas were only mentioned to me after I had announced I was leaving.

"Liverpool replaced coaches Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh in the summer, so they were looking for a new No. 2, or No. 3 or No. 4.

"I would have been tailor-made to fill one of these roles, as well as making myself available as a squad player.

"I could have been a good squad player, a good sub, as well as getting management experience that money can't buy."
