Steven Gerrard contract news: Rickie Lambert leads players’ quest to convince captain to stay

Posted by

The striker is joined by Henderson in the desire to keep the captain at Anfield.

Steven Gerrard is currently considering a contract offer from the club and Jordan Henderson and Rickie Lambert are leading a players’ quest to try and convince our captain to stay.

Gerrard was handed the offer to extend his current deal – which expires next summer – a fortnight ago, but as yet is unsure whether to extend his stay or not.

Brendan Rodgers insists this has nothing to do with money and is more to do with what the skipper’s role in the team will be and also certain lifestyle choices.

Like most of us Henderson and Lambert are keen for the midfielder to stay on and finish his career having played just for just one club.

“I think I am speaking for everyone involved in Liverpool when I say that we are desperate to keep Stevie,” the striker was quoted by the Guardian.

“It’s clear that it’s his decision and the club’s decision but I think he needs to stay at Liverpool for the rest of his life.”

Henderson concurs with Lambert and the man tipped to one day be given the armband by Gerrard wants the 34-year-old to stick around as well.

“Every single member of the squad hopes he stays for many years to come. It is down to him, the club and his representatives to sort it out,” the 24-year-old said.

“He is huge for us and we need to keep him for as long as we can. Liverpool without Steven Gerrard is unimaginable. Nobody wants to lose him and I’m sure the club feel that way as well.”
