Reds rubbish Gerrard exit talk

10 May 2008 01:18
Liverpool have dismissed reports suggesting club captain Steven Gerrard is on his way to Internazionale this summer. The England international also insists he has no desire to leave Anfield and would be happy to spend the rest of his career with the club. A spokesman said: "The idea is complete rubbish, fantasy. There has been no approach and no bid." Gerrard told the club's official website: "I cannot see myself ever leaving Liverpool now, and what I would dearly love is to lead this club to the next level that I believe we're capable of reaching. "I've won trophies here but there's one I'm missing and I want that before I finish playing. "I don't want to look back and say I've never been in a title race. I can see that the team is getting stronger and stronger and I can see that we're going forward. I feel that we're getting closer and I really believe that. "We always say this every year but it will be an important summer because we need to keep the momentum. "The manager's signings will be important as they always are. I've been lucky as a footballer and I've won more things than most players, but I'm greedy because I always want more. "I want to win as many trophies as I can with Liverpool. That's why the summer is important. "We're a young team with a lot of promise and, if the manager can get the right support, then we could take an important step forward. "We're disappointed we didn't maintain a challenge in the league for longer than we did. The points gap between us and the top two is not particularly pleasant viewing for anyone here at Anfield."
