Liverpool star and captain Steven Gerrard reveals he wants to finish his career at Anfield on a high by winning FA Cup and by qualifying for Champions League this season.

The Reds legend have recently suffered a hamstring injury and sat out for seven matches and will be available for selection for their clash against Swansea this Monday. Liverpool are still in FA cup hunt after their 0-0 draw over Blackburn Rovers last Sunday and a replay is scheduled on April 9.

Gerrard will also take part in the Liverpool’s all-star charity game with him selecting the likes of Suarez, Thierry Henry, Torres, Xabi Alonso and John Terry as his team mates on March 29.

Talking in the promotion of the game, he said: “I’ve just got over a hamstring injury and I am fit and available for the next game. I want to finish the season really strong and leave the team in the top four and hopefully go all the way in the FA Cup – that is how I want to sign off.”

He also praised John Terry for accepting his invitation to play for the event despite not playing for Liverpool in his whole career by saying, “Credit to John Terry, many people in his position would have turned away and not come. He may get some stick on the day but for me it shows you what type of guy he is for coming and helping out.”

The Reds captain have already signed a pre-contract for MLS based LA Galaxy back in January as his contract with the Reds set to run out at the end of the current campaign.
