VIDEO: Raheem Sterling too good for Liverpool?


It’s barely April but we’re already seeing indications that Raheem Sterling will be the subject of this summer’s annoying transfer story. The one which is dragged out throughout the duration of the transfer window with both sides leaking news to the media as per their convenience and generally adding to the chaotic nature of the transfer window that we all love to loathe.

The Sterling drama is one that we’ve seen enacted plenty of times already, each time with a different lead actor. What is surprising though is that both parties have taken to voicing their opinions about the situation in public, a rare occurrence when there’s still plenty to play for in Merseyside. Liverpool are still not out of the race for Champions League football next season but can hardly afford any more slip-ups if they hope to catch up with rivals Manchester United. Thus, with the season drawing to a conclusion the Reds can ill afford to have off-field issues cloud the dressing room. Sterling may only be 20 years old but there’s no denying his importance to Brendn Rodgers’ side. With Daniel Sturridge once again on the treatment table, it will be the likes of Sterling and Coutinho who will be responsible for providing the attacking verve at Anfield.

The majority of fans have perceived this to be yet another affirmation of the mercenary tendencies of young footballers especially with Rodgers’ comments on how Sterling had been offered “an incredible deal for a young player”. The player himself provided the next, albeit slightly delayed, act of the drama through an interview with the BBC. At the end of the day, the decision is of course Sterling’s and his representatives but we can only hope that the outcome is motivated by footballing reasons rather than monetary ones.
