The manager of Liverpool FC, Brendan Rodgers, has said that the club has been talking to the skipper Steven Gerrard about the extension of his contract.
Gerrard’s contract with Liverpool will expire at the end of the 2013-14 season.
Although Gerrard is 32 years of age now but, he has given no indications that the age is getting on him. He is still as energetic as 25 years old and he has been the most consistent performer for the Reds in the ongoing season.
Talking to the reporters about the extension of Gerrard’s contract, Rodgers said, “I went with Steven for a dinner a few days ago and we had a discussion on the contract issue.”
“I am glad with how Steven has performed in this season. To have a leader like him in the team is just fantastic. He really deserves the extension of contract.”
“He is a very soft spoken and dedicated guy. For him, the team always comes first. He gives his everything whenever he goes out there to play in Liverpool jersey.”
In one of his interviews, a few days ago, Gerrard had also said that he wanted to sign a new deal for Liverpool.
When asked about the extension of contract, the Liverpool skipper had said, “I want a contract extension and the club is ready for it. So, now, it’s about time only. Let’s see when I sign a new deal.”
“The length of contract extension hasn’t yet been decided. That is something which is under consideration at this point of time. But, I think it’ll be sorted out in a couple of weeks.”
“Off late, I have been at my peak. Now, the focus is on finishing the season in a strong way. Hopefully, I will be able to do that.”
