Contract extension on the cards for Gerrard

There’s been some exciting news concerning Liverpool Captain Steven Gerrard reported today in the Liverpool Echo. It seems he is in line to be handed a one year extension to his contract which will secure his place at the club until 2016.

Gerrard has not only been intrinsic in Liverpool’s challenge on the title this year, but has showed impressive loyalty to the team, making his debut with the club in 1998 and spending his entire career contributing to the success of the club in winning every major trophy except the Premier League.

lfc-booksMoving Gerrard back from his normal midfield position this season has allowed him more time on the ball, a decision which has certainly delivered results.

Rodgers, recently describing Gerrard as ‘the best controlling midfielder in Europe’ is clearly happy to confirm that the extension is on the cards saying: “Steven will be one we look to get a contract to in the summer. With a year to go, it’s something we will address.

“I believe Steven will play beyond 2015. He is a player who has really shown his qualities this season. Come the summer, he will still only be 34. Looking towards the future, I still think he’s going to be a key part of our squad.

“He has dropped into a new position and played it seamlessly. His intelligence in the game is second to none. He is improving all the time. It’s one where he has been brilliant for me as a captain and as a player this season and I would like that to continue.’
