Profile

Jordan Milson is lead fitness coach for Steven Gerrard's Liverpool U18s team.

The Scouser made the switch to the role from first-team duties at Melwood when the Reds legend began his tenure with the youth side in the summer of 2017.

"It's a new challenge, a different type of role in different surroundings. It should be fairly challenging but really exciting," he said.

"The idea is to keep the players healthy and give them the best chance of giving Steven headaches when it comes to picking sides. They'll only develop if they're able to train and play every day. They won't be developing if they're in the treatment room for too long."

Jordan - a boyhood Reds fan - originally joined the club as rehab fitness coach in the summer of 2010 and worked closely with Gerrard during the latter years of his playing career.

He has a degree from Liverpool University and an MSc in Sports Physiology from John Moores University, and previously worked as a sports scientist at Leicester City.
