LIVERPOOL legend Steven Gerrard has been warned to avoid a move to Greece, reports suggest.
Gerrard has been linked with Olympiacos, who are actively looking for a new head coach following the departure of their third manager this season.
According to The Mail, however, “insiders” from Greece claim the former Aston Villa manager, who has been out of a job since October, would be “unwise” to take on the role.
That is not because of Olympiacos, who have won a whopping 10 titles in the last 13 years and have made it through to the knockout stages in Europe 13 times in their last 15 attempts.
Gerrard has been warned in the wake of reported corruption within the country’s football.
This comes after a Polish referee denied “fake news” claiming he and three other officials arrived drunk and fought other passengers at the airport before officiating a match in Greece.
First official Pawel Raczkowski, his assistants Radoslaw Siejka as well as Adam Kupcik and VAR ref Krzysztof Jakubik have categorically denied those allegations and stated they were in fact the ones assaulted.
The ref added that he was “spat” at in the face and “pushed” by the alleged assailants until security intervened.
However, English head of the Greek refereeing committee Steve Bennet still replaced the Polish quartet with a Greek team for the crucial play-off clash between AEK and Aris earlier this month.
Greek referees don’t officiate derbies or play-off matches in the country following a long history of shady calls.
