Liverpool Captain Steven Gerrard today signed a new two-year contract extension. The signing of the contract took place at Melwood on Monday morning .
The contract will see 33-year-old Gerrard remain with Liverpool until he is at least 35. Despite heading into the latter end of his career, Gerrard remains an influential player both on the pitch, and off it for club and country. He made his level debut in 1998, aged just 18. He has since gone on to make over 620 appearances for his club, and has 102 caps for his country.
Gerrard said: “I think everyone knows what it means to me.
“I’ve been here that long and so to extend, it’s a big day for me and I’m really happy for myself and my family. It’s great news.
“It lets me know the club thinks an awful lot of me and want me here.
“I’m glad it’s all done and it’s happened at the right time before the season, so I can just focus on playing as well as I can.”
He made 35 League appearance for Liverpool in the league last season, scoring 9 goals as he helped Brendan Roger secure 7th place in his first season in charge.
