Steven Reid has said he’s delighted to reach 30 years of age and still be playing in the Premier League, and he’s certainly no intention of giving that up just yet.

Speaking to the Sunday Mercury Reid said his attitude and desire on the pitch hasn’t changed, and he feels he’s reached a landmark in being able to maintain his form as he enters the twilight years of his career.

‘I’ve managed to claw myself to 30, it’s a landmark, so I’m obviously proud of that. I need to look after myself a bit better now, but I love getting stuck in and I love the physical side of the game as well.’

Reid goes on to credit the medical staff at the Baggies for helping to ‘manage’ him through the aches and pains and the injuries that he’s had over the last few years.

‘Credit to the medical staff and the sports science people, I’ve had a couple of serious injuries over the past few years so I’ve got to be careful and make sure I’m right for the weekends.’

Reid confirms he’s not looking to hang up his boots just yet as he says his aim is now to keep performing in his new home at right back and staying fit for the rest of the season.
