Brendan Rodgers har klargjort att han gärna vill se en kontraktsförlängning med Glen Johnson: – We want to keep Glen here, sa Rodgers till The Liverpool Echo.
– There is no question about that, especially now he’s in this form. He’s 29 and we feel that he has still got good years ahead of him. No contracts will be looked at until the summer but his will be a priority for us, especially if he continues in the form that he’s in, fortsatte Rodgers.
På frågan om Johnsons ålder och nuvarande lön kommer att utgöra ett hinder i förhandlingarna svarade Rodgers: – It just means you just have to sit, debate and discuss what’s best for the club and the player. The beauty of this is we want to keep Glen and Glen loves it here. We just need to find a solution which is good for both.
– If we can do that then the club will have a very good player for years to come. We have other players like young Jon Flanagan who only has one year left, while Jordan Henderson only has two years left. They have been great and we want to look at those contracts.
– That’s something that will be for the summer. The players can do themselves no harm by continuing to play in the form they are in. The club will then take a close look at it.
Rodgers passade även på att berömma Johnson och kallade honom bland annat för ”en av världens bästa ytterbackar”.
