thumbnail Hello,

The England international has revealed he would like to remain at Anfield for the rest of his career.

Steven Gerrard has hailed the current Liverpool setup, revealing that he is extremely pleased with their Premier League title challenge this season.

The Reds captain also insisted that he has no plans to leave Anfield, suggesting that he is open to signing a contract extension.

"I’ve never been happier than I am at the moment throughout my career," Gerrard is quoted as saying in The Daily Post.

"I’m playing in a top team, I’m playing with world-class players and I believe in the manager [Rafael Benitez] that, going forward, we can be successful.

"It is important. I do want to be successful. I’m really happy at the club at the moment. I’ve got two years left on my contract and if there was a chance to extend that, I’m sure I’d do it."

The 28-year-old has found the back of the net 21 times in 38 appearances this season, including six goals in his last three games, and he says he is flourishing in his role just behind striker Fernando Torres.

"My relationship with ‘Rafa’ has got stronger and stronger as time’s gone by. Maybe when I was a bit younger I was a bit selfish. Thinking of myself a bit too much when he was playing me out of position.

"I should have maybe taken a deep breath and realised it was for the team. But, at the moment, he’s playing me in my favourite position, I’m captain, [and] we’re winning.

"Things at the club are really good. For years and years, I’ve moaned about not being involved in a title race and being far away from the other teams.

"But, at the moment, I’m playing in a team that’s capable of beating anyone in the league."
