Steven Gerrard has said that he “never give up fighting for the title” despite knowing that time is running out for him to do it, reports the Independent.
However, he feels confident he will be staying at Liverpool football club beyond his current contract which runs out when the next season ends, and wants to win the Premier League trophy with the team despite their present limitations.
Gerrard told Press Association Sport: “I am never going to give up fighting for the title. But I’m realistic about where the team is at the moment and how much hard work and improvement needs to be done if we are to compete for it.”
He has also admitted that his titles with Liverpool, are more important to him than missing out on winning a Premier League medal elsewhere.
“Would that league title mean as much to me as the other trophies I’ve won here? No-fact.’
This is despite being made two offers by Chelsea in the past, which he turned down, with the 32-year-old reiterating that he made the right decision.
” I am really happy I stayed. I am captain of the club I love.”
Steven Gerrard, has been at Anfield since he was aged nine and made his debut for them in 1998.
He says he knows time is against him but wants to believe his ultimate dream can come true.
“Have I got time on my side? No. Is it impossible? No,” he added.
Steven Gerrard was speaking at a launch for his new book, ‘My Liverpool Story’.
