Cape Town - Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has expressed his desire to extend his stay in Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The former Ivory Coast international has been a first-choice replacement for the suspended Mamadou Sakho in Jurgen Klopp's team during the closing stages of their Premier League campaign.
Speaking after Wednesday's 3-1 defeat to Sevilla in the Europa League final, the 35-year-old revealed that his future at Anfield was uncertain.
"I don't know to be honest," he told Sky Sports. "I am just enjoying my time in this club - a fantastic club and fantastic supporters. We will see what will happen and you will have to ask that question to the manager.
"Of course I want to stay. It's a great club to play in, but the manager has his plan and any decision I will respect. He is a top manager and he knows what he is doing."
Toure also feels their loss in the final of the continental tournament will help the team going forward.
"We have a young team and it's part of the game," he added. "Sevilla are a very experienced team. They had won the trophy twice.
"Our manager has been here six months and we went to two finals. It's good and the future is bright at Liverpool."
