Liverpool stalwart Jamie Carragher believes that fellow Reds legend Steven Gerrard will follow his lead and end his career at Anfield, according to the
The England captain is set to be offered a new contract by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, with his current deal set to expire at the end of next season. And Carragher, who will walk away from the game this summer having spent his entire career on Merseyside, has backed Gerrard to do spend the rest of his playing days at Anfield.
Carragher said: “I’m sure Stevie will sign a contract and finish his career at Liverpool the way I’ve done. There’s no doubt about that. I’m sure he’ll sit down and sort it out in the next couple of months.
“Steve will be finishing his career at Liverpool. He’s captain fantastic every week.”
The 32-year-old midfielder has played in every minute of Liverpool’s Premier League campaign so far this season, scoring from the penalty spot in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.
That win kept the Reds just three points behind local rivals Everton in sixth place, heightening hopes of a top-six finish, but Carragher has played down talk of Europe.
Carragher continued: “I don’t really look too far ahead and to be honest if you asked most of the lads, they wouldn’t even know what position would get us into Europe.
“Sometimes it is fifth spot, sometimes sixth, seventh. We just will try and carry on and win games and see where it takes us.”
