Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has signed a new two-year extension to his contract at the Anfield club.

The 33-year-old midfielder will likely see out his playing career at Liverpool. The club’s managing director Ian Ayre said, regarding the contract extension:

“It’s fantastic for everyone – the club, Steven and the fans.

“He is – and always has been – such a big part of Liverpool Football Club. Particularly in this day and age, it’s rather unique to find a local player who has given his whole career to his club.

“We’re pleased today to add an extension to his existing agreement and that keeps him here until the end of his career.

“We’ve said what we’ll do in two years’ time is review it again and see how happy Steven is. We seem to always be happy with him, so hopefully we’ll just continue in that vein.”

Gerrard has spent his entire playing career at Liverpool. The England midfielder has made 630 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 159 goals and helping Liverpool win major trophies such as the Champions League, FA Cup, UEFA Cup and League Cup.

What’s your opinion about Gerrard’s role at Liverpool? Will the next two years of his contract see the club slowly try to transition players into his position so there’s a natural progression at Anfield once Gerrard decides to hang up his boots? Share your opinions in the comments section below.

    This will work out great when Liverpool anounce that they have given up on winning the League, FA Cup, Champions league and Europa, and will compete with the Sisters of the Poor in a new league developed by the folks in Boston.
