Kuyt urges Stevie G stay

Gerrard, who is currently captaining England at the World Cup, is reportedly close to leaving the club he has been with all his career.

“I wouldn’t like to see Steven Gerrard go,” said Kuyt.

“Everyone wants to keep Stevie at the club.

“He is the captain, he is very important and his heart is bleeding Liverpool.

“So it must be a very good offer or a very good club if he wants to leave.

“I don’t know anything about this. It is just up to him, up to the club.”
