Gerrard extends Liverpool contract

Gerrard extends contract

After agreeing to a contract extension back in April on a verbal basis, Steven Gerrard has put pen to paper to stay with the club until 2013.

The player returned to the club from his summer holiday for training and officially secured his future and services to the club he's played for all his life.

Manager Rafa Benitez was delighted with the extension :

We have spent this summer trying to secure the players we have.

It's really good to keep Kuyt, Torres, Agger, Benayoun and Steven. They are the here and now of the club and for the future it is really good.

We are really pleased. We have a lot of good players who want to stay, to win and compete. The message has to be the same again this year - to be there, to be contenders and to fight. If we can win trophies it would be fantastic.

Some message to be sending out to all the youngsters switching club over and over!
