Steven Gerrard outlines five-year plan
Wednesday 19 January 2011
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has set himself the target of playing for another five years.
The England midfielder, 31 in May, admits he has been lifted by Kenny Dalglish's return as manager in the last fortnight.
And he wants to carry on playing for as long as possible, although he has considered taking his coaching badges like team-mate Jamie Carragher.
"It's not my main priority or focus at the moment, I still think that's a long way off," he told LFC Weekly.
"I believe I can play football for another four or five years but I do sometimes think about what I'm going to do when I finish playing.
"I would like to stay involved in some capacity, whether that's on the media side or in the dugout we'll have to wait and see.
"I will certainly try to get my coaching qualifications at some point."
