Gerrard ponders retirement date

Published Add your comment

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed he is considering retiring at the end of his current contract.

The 29-year-old England midfielder has a deal until 2013 with the Reds, but admits it could be his last in football.

"I'll be 33 at the end of my contract, and it's doubtful whether I'll carry on," he said in an interview with France Football. "If I decide to stop, I'll be proud of the fact I've spent my entire career with the same club."

Gerrard also revealed he gave serious thought to leaving Anfield for Chelsea four years ago, but changed his mind late in the day.

"I've thought about leaving Liverpool twice during my career, especially in 2005 when Chelsea was a temptation," he added.

"But I'm glad I never turned those thoughts into reality."
