Downing admits he is playing for Liverpool future
Liverpool winger Stewart Downing has admitted he is playing for his future at Anfield, and does not know if he has done enough to stay at the club in the summer, reports the Telegraph.
Downing’s future was publically under threat after Reds manager Brendan Rodgers admitted the player could leave the club in December, but since being given the chance in the Liverpool first-team, initially at left-back, Downing feels he has improved his performances.
"I had a situation where I could have left. But I didn't want to and the only way to stay was to get into the team and do well. I just needed that chance and luckily enough I got that in the weeks after that conversation.
“I'm happy with how it's going at the minute, but whether that changes in the summer I don't know.”
The 28-year-old midfielder signed for £20m from Aston Villa in the Summer of 2011, and was part of the first-team under Kenny Dalglish that finished 8th in the Premier League.
This season the England international has so far made 16 league appearances, scoring one goal.
