Gerrard eyes Reds retirement

16 Jun 2009 - 15:28:31

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard has hinted that he may retire from the game at the end of his current Reds contract in the summer of 2103.

The 29-year-old England international has spent the whole of his career to date at Anfield and has no plans to move anywhere else before he calls time.

He told France Football: "I will be 33 at the end of my contract in 2013 and I don't know if I will go any further.

"If I do retire, then I will know that from the start to the end of my career, I only had one club. I don't want to think about wearing any other shirt in the future.

"I was close to leaving in the past, maybe twice, most notably in 2005. That year we were a long way off the Premier League title and Chelsea's interest turned my head.

"It was a difficult moment for me. However, now when I look back, I am very happy that I chose to stay here."

Meanwhile, Napoli's sporting director Pierpaolo Marino has warned Argentinian striker Ezequiel Lavezzi to report back for pre-season training with the Serie A club.

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield this summer, but Marino seems unwilling to consider a transfer for Lavezzi, who is under contract until the summer of 2013.

Marino stated: "It's not war, nor peace. The player will have to turn up for pre-season training on July 10 and that's that.

"If Lavezzi fails to turn up on that given date, then things would change."
