This January, Gerrard signed a renewal three-year contract with Liverpool; it means that the 31-year-old Gerrard may have been working in Liverpool till he bids farewell to his football boots. He said: “Maybe, I will become the ambassador of Liverpool, but who knows what will happen in the next 2-3 years. it cannot be said, maybe I can receive a quote.”
In the eyes of many neutral fans, it is not good for Gerrard that he always works in Liverpool. As the captain, the most brilliant he won along with Liverpool is the Champions League trophy they won in 2005 in the Istanbul. As one of the spokesmen of Adidas predator football boots, he makes such football boots known to the fans in Liverpool even in the world.
After all, he has always played in Anfield, which will means that he will always miss the Premier Champion in his career. The former England coach Eriksson had publicly called for Gerrard to leave Liverpool, but Gerrard responded: “I will not blame for my club. I will not complain the club, because the club changed the boss, Benitez soled Alonso, Javier Mascherano moved to Barcelona. I will only blame that I failed to seize the opportunity. Liverpool once ranked at the second of the league; that season we should have won the champion if we were not tied by the opponents in the 2-3 stupid games. I have to take the responsibility, as I was one of the team.”
“When you are blamed, your firstly should look around yourself. In the time of football, it is not so easy to criticize others. Of course, I do not really have the opportunity to get the league title, which will be a pity in my football career. But I will not regret since I have made up my mind. And, I won the best champion trophy in Liverpool. There are many players who won the Premiership title but failed to clinch the Champions League trophy.”
“As the captain of the England team, I have been on behalf of the ‘Three Lions’ to participate in more than 100 games. I am still the captain of Liverpool and I win many honors. 90% of my career has reached the expectation, in the next 2-3 years, I will still have expatiation, but also full of desire for victory.” Gerrrard said.
