Liverpool’s Gerrard to retire in 2013June 17th, 2009 - 6:32 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 17 (ANI): Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard has said that he will hang up his boots in 2013.
“I’ll be 33 at the end of my contract and it’s doubtful whether I’ll carry on. If I decide to stop, I will be proud of the fact I’ve spent my entire career with the same club,” The Sun quoted Gerrard, as saying.
Gerrard’s contract with Liverpool will end in 2013, and he has admitted that he is unlikely to seek an extension when it expires.
Meanwhile, Anfield skipper has insisted on his conviction of having a Premier League winners’ medal by then.
“I thought about leaving Liverpool twice, especially in 2005 when Chelsea was a temptation. I’m glad I never did. If we don’t win the title this year, it’ll be the next, or the year after and that will be the greatest moment of my career,” he added. (ANI)
