Liverpool FC kept waiting by Steven Gerrard over new contract
Gerrard insists he will take his time after Liverpool FC offered their captain a fresh deal
December 3rd, 2014
Steven Gerrard was the match winner for Liverpool on Tuesday night as the Reds claimed a 3-1 win at Leicester, although the club skipper has refused to be drawn over whether he will sign a new contract at Anfield.
The 34-year-old was back in the starting line-up for the encounter at the King Power Stadium which saw Liverpool come from a goal down to win by a 3-1 scoreline and offer hope that the Reds can finish in the top four again this term.
However, it’s far from clear whether Gerrard will remain at Liverpool come the end of the season despite the Merseyside club offering the midfielder an extension.
“I’ll decide when I’m ready,” he told BT Sport. “There’s nothing to say on the contract at the moment. When there is, the fans have known me long enough, I’ll come out and say what I need to say.”
Liverpool have now gone three matches unbeaten since losing 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
“Over the last three performances we’ve been superb and we need to keep trying to improve on that,” said Gerrard.
“The reason I don’t want to answer your questions [on my contract] tonight is because it’s not about me, it’s about the performance and a great three points, and that’s what the headline should be.”
