Liverpool players are enjoying themselves in Dubai this week…
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Mamadou Sakho, Martin Skrtel and Joe Allen lead the celebrations, singing the infamous Kolo Toure/Yaya Toure song originally sung by Manchester City supporters when the Ivorian brothers were at the Etihad.
“It’s fantastic news and I couldn’t ask for more,” he told the club’s official website. “For me, to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world for longer means a lot to me, so I feel really happy to extend my career at this fantastic club.
“Everything is great for me with the other players, the manager, the club and the fans and I love it here.
“I am one of the most experienced players in the squad and I have to play that role because we have so many young players. For me, it’s important that I try to help those young players when they need it. I am happy to do that, I like to take on that responsibility, and I enjoy that role.
“The manager has known me for a long time and we’ve been speaking very well together. He knows what I can do on and off the pitch.
“If I can help them in any way with my experience to achieve things next season, that would be massive for me.”
