One of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard could become the next England Under-21 national team coach as Lee Carsley could walk away from the job after the Euros this year.
Both men were celebrated midfielders during their playing days but have found it hard to keep a management job at the top level.
Gerrard was very successful in Scotland, winning the league with Rangers before returning to the Premier League to manage a very ambitious Aston Villa side.
However, he did not last too long there and was fired in the first half of this season after failing to help his side recover from a poor run of form.
The ex-Liverpool man was linked with the Poland national team job earlier, but he remains unattached.
Lampard has managed Chelsea and Everton in the English top flight and was recently fired by the Toffees as they failed to shake off a poor start to the season.
The Daily Mail reports that both ex-England internationals are on the shortlist of targets to replace Carsley, and the FA will contact them if the current U21 manager decides to leave at the end of the Euros.
It would be interesting to see if either of them will want to take up the offer and quit club management.
