Liverpool centre-back Kolo Toure has insisted that he will be continue playing beyond this season, despite being in the final year of his contract at the Merseyside club.
The Ivorian defender has made just four starts under the newly appointed manager Jurgen Klopp, including the recent 2-1 win over Bordeaux in the Europa League.
The 35-year-old told the Liverpool Echo: “No, no, no, I’m not thinking about retiring at the end of the season. I want to carry on playing football. I love it, I feel fresh and I’m still working hard.
“I can go on for another four or five years. No, I take it year by year but as long as I feel fit and the fans and the club are happy with me I’ll be here. I’ll be here as long as the club think I can help. I want to do good things for Liverpool.”
Toure joined Liverpool from Manchester City in 2013 and has won the Premier League title with both Arsenal and City during his glorious 13-year top-flight career.
