Gerrard bombshell! Liverpool captain reveals he could join another club next summer

first_imgLiverpool captain Steven Gerrard is prepared to continue his playing career away from Anfield if he is not offered a new deal by the Merseyside club.The 34-year-old, who is nearing 700 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, is out of contract at his boyhood side at the end of the current campaign and is yet to hold talks over an extension.“I can only worry about this season because I’m only contracted until May,” Gerrard said, in an interview with the Daily Mail.“As it stands at the moment, I’m here until the end of the season and want to make the most of it. I certainly won’t be retiring this summer. I will play beyond this season.“We will have to wait and see if that’s at Liverpool or somewhere else. That’s Liverpool’s decision. If they don’t come then I will see what’s out there.”Gerrard also leapt to the defence Mario Balotelli, who has come under-fire having struggled to make a major impact at Anfield following his summer move from AC Milan.Among those to have questioned the Italian’s credentials is Gerrard’s old friend and team-mate Jamie Carragher, who labelled Balotelli as a “panic” buy following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona over the summer.Yet Gerrard said: “You have to respect Jamie’s opinion. He knows football but it’s too early to get on Mario’s back.“He just needs time to score the goals he needs to prove to people he is worthy of staying here. I am not going to judge him after 10 games. To come in after Suarez was always going to be a big ask and he’s not feeling sorry for himself. He is working hard, doing extra shooting sessions.“I’ve actually been impressed (with) the way he goes about his work. You hear all kinds of stories and rumours before you meet him, but he does all the work. I like the guy.” 1 Steven Gerrard last_img
