Steven Gerrard has admitted that he held talks with League One side MK Dons over their vacant managerial position.
But the 36-year-old felt it is not the right time to start a managerial career with the Dons, who currently sit in the relegation zone of the third tier of English football and parted company with Karl Robinson last month.
"I spoke to them [MK Dons]. I had a chat with the chairman, I think it's a very exciting job for someone else," Gerrard told BT Sport.
"But it's a bit soon for me, but it is true I did speak to them yes."
He said: "It was very enjoyable.
"Unfortunately we never won the MLS this season. We got to the semi-finals and got knocked out on penalties, so slightly disappointed with how it finished, but it was still very enjoyable.
"I'm taking a bit of time to consider what's next. Exciting times moving forward."
