The Liverpool defender, Jon Flanagan, has insisted that he is not worrying about the lack of contract negotiations at Anfield, despite his current deal expiring at the end of the season.
Flanagan is back in the fold for the first time since an injury lay-off subsequently saw him out injured for two-years.
The Liverpudlian started his sides 2-1 victory away at Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, where Christian Benteke netted a controversial late penalty to seal maximum points for the Reds.
Defender Not Worries
Speaking prior to the game against Palace, Flanagan admitted that he is not concerned by the lack of a new deal: “I’m just concentrating on my football, leaving that sort of thing to my agent”, he said.
“I’ve got to do my talking on the pitch, there’s no point worrying or stressing about it.”
“And I’ve heard other people at the club want [my contract] sorted, so hopefully that’s positive.
“The hardest time was after one operation, finding out you’ve got to have another one and it’s going to put you back six to nine months.
“It’s hard seeing the lads go out on to the training pitch when you’re stuck on your own in the gym, but you have to stay upbeat, you have to stay positive.
“Growing up all I wanted to do is play for Liverpool and now the days are here and I just want them to continue really.”
