Liverpool legend: Sterling has shown the club respect

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has hailed Raheem Sterling for his attitude since breaking into the first team at Anfield.

The 18-year-old from Harlesden is close to signing a new contract and despite speculation about his future has continually indicated that he wants to stay at the club.

And Fowler told the Daily Mirror: “It’s so easy these days for kids to believe their own publicity.

“But I watch Raheem and I can see he has respect for the team and for the senior players around him.

“And his decision-making is good – he doesn’t just want to beat players and then shoot to get personal glory.

“I think the manager has to take some credit in that development. He’s still a kid and got a long way to go – he needs to improve his final ball.

“But Brendan Rodgers has already proved himself as a coach at the top level, and he’s in the right hands.”
