Great news for all of us Liverpool Fans. Captain Fantastic, Steven Gerrard has agreed a two year extension to his current contract as reported on the official Liverpool Website. This means that Gerrard will be at Liverpool until 2013 now and I am sure he would even sign after that as he has said he wants to end his career at Liverpool.
This comes as great news in the build up to the big game tomorrow against Fulham. A game we just have to win so that we go top of the table for atleast 24 hours. News like this will surely send out a buzz to the rest of the players in the squad.
It is really no surprise to me that Gerrard has signed a contract extension, especially since Rafa has committed to stay at the club for the next 5 years. There is now a bit of stability in the team as we know who the coach will be and many more players are going to commit their long term plans to Liverpool all because Rafa is staying. Obviously there will be a few players who do not see eye to eye with Rafa and his policies and they may want to leave. But if the manager and captain have committed to stay for the long haul then surely this can only bode well for us and the great future that lies ahead of us.
