Gerrard hits career peak and wants to stay

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard says he has never been happier and is ready to commit himself to the club for the rest of his career.

The 28-year-old, who made his debut against Blackburn Rovers in November 1998 as a substitute right-back for Norwegian Vegard Heggem, is enjoying another fantastic season in the Reds midfield, creating a formidable partnership with striker Fernando Torres and scoring 21 goals so far.

After Reds boss Rafa Benitez signed a new five year deal last week, Gerrard ‘“ currently away on international duty with England ‘“ wants to follow suit.

He says, “I have never been happier throughout my whole career than I am at the moment.

“I have two years left on my contract and if there was a chance to extend it, I am sure I would.

“I am playing in a top team, with world-class players and I believe in the manager. Going forward, I am sure we can be successful.”
