Liverpool have confirmed that club legend Steven Gerrard will take charge of their Under-18 side from next season.

Gerrard returned to the Reds to take up a role as academy coach in February after leaving LA Galaxy in November and announcing his retirement from professional football.

The 36-year-old replaces Neil Critchley, who has moved up to become U23 manager with current boss Mike Garritty shifting to his backroom staff.

I have really enjoyed my time at the Academy so far and feel I have learnt a lot from the coaching staff here already.

After speaking to Alex [Inglethorpe], we feel as though it is time for me to step up and manage my own team.

Neil has done a fantastic job with the U18s, so I hope I can continue where he left off, encouraging and nurturing players into the U23s and eventually the first-team setup.

Christian Eriksen claims Tottenham's battling win at Crystal Palace proves they are still right in the title race.

Spurs faced being six points off the pace until Eriksen's long-range strike with 12 minutes remaining at Selhurst Park secured a 1-0 triumph and ensured the gap to leaders Chelsea is just four.

It was Denmark midfielder Eriksen's eighth Premier League goal of the season, and he acknowledged it could be the most important.

Yes, it was a very big goal. We showed we're still in it.

We have to focus on ourselves, and of course Chelsea have to lose some points, but that was our chance to keep going and we took it.

That result gives us a confidence boost for the last five games. We have to keep going, focus on ourselves and see where it ends.

Bayern Munich have announced they have triggered an option to sign winger Kingsley Coman from Juventus, committing the 20-year-old to a three-year deal at the Allianz Arena.

Coman joined Bayern from the Serie A champions on a two-year loan in the summer of 2015, but Bayern possessed an option to make the move permanent that was due to expire on April 30.

Announcing the deal, Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website: "He is a player with huge potential. We're convinced that he will be of great help to us in the coming years."
