Steven Gerrard insists he is “very happy” at Liverpool and has not been tempted by a move away from England.

The England captain has been encouraged to end his career at a “big international club” by Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic but the 32-year-old insists he has no intention of leaving Merseyside.

“I’m a big fan of Zlatan as a player but I’m not going to take his advice,” said Gerrard, who will win his 100th cap for England when he leads Roy Hodgson’s men out in Wednesday’s friendly against Sweden.

“I am very happy at Liverpool and in my opinion I am at one of the biggest clubs in the world, a team that has won the European Cup five times. So I’m happy where I am but thanks for his opinion.”

Ibrahimovic, who sealed a move to Paris from AC Milan in the summer, feels the Liverpool captain would benefit from “showing who he is” in a foreign league.

“Steven Gerrard is respected throughout Europe and is always the player the coach says to be careful with because he is the one that makes the difference,” said Ibrahimovic.

“But, although of course Liverpool is a big club, I would like to see Steven at a big international club.”

“I would like him move also for England because it is very exciting when someone goes abroad and shows who he is in another competition.

“For me, a fantastic player can make the difference in every country wherever he plays. I’m pretty sure Steven would do that also.”
