Good News For Liverpool If Gerrard Quits England


It is believed England captain Steven Gerrard is set to retire from international football after this summer’s World Cup. The Liverpool captain leads Roy Hodgson’s squad into the tournament and recognises that to play on for the next two years – having just extended his contract to 2016 – he won’t be able to continue at international level.


The World Cup would be a tremendous way to finish his international career and Gerrard realises that to prolong his career something will have to be sacrificed and it must be international football.


The Liverpool captain might have been able to prolong his international career a little longer if like last season, his club weren’t involved in European competition, but Liverpool’s involvement means extra games and with father time is catching up on Gerrard and he can’t do what he did 10 years ago.


Brendan Rodgers has been instrumental in giving Gerrard a new lease of life by creating a new role in the team for him in a deeper midfield role which sees him influence games in a sort of ‘quarterback’ role with his brilliant range of passes.


Rodgers sees Gerrard’s new role in the team as a position that can see him prolong his career and if he does retire from international duty then it will be great news for Liverpool because their captain still has a lot to offer and that Premiership title to win.
