The Liverpool midfielder will be out of contract after this season. The Englishman who announced his retirement from international football in July is currently playing his 17th season for Liverpool.
The 34-year-old joined Liverpool academy at the age of nine, he has made 678 appearances for the Anfield side.
Gerrard has also said that he has no plans to retire from club football next summer.
The Reds captain told the Daily Mail: “I can only worry about this season because I'm only contracted until May.”
He also added that he will have to wait and see what the club decides for his future.
Gerrard has played all Premier League and Champions League so far this season and has been impressive in most of the games.
While on the other side, Gerrard defended Liverpool’s new striker Mario Balotelli who is struggling in front of goals. He has scored only 2 goals in 12 appearances.
Former Liverpool defender and current SkySports pundit Jamie Carragher called his transfer as A Panic Buy. But Gerrad disagreed with his former teammate and told that its too early to say. He has played only 12 games and he will take time to settle.
“You have to respect Jamie's opinion, he knows football but it's too early to get on Mario's back”, Gerrard said.
Balotelli is working hard at Melwood, he is doing extra training to prove himself.
