Sterling full of praise for Gerrard and Rodgers
Posted On March 20, 2014
Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling has lavished praise on Brendan Rodgers and Steven Gerrard, crediting them both for his fine form this season, according to the Metro.
The 19 year old has scored six goals and made four assists in the Premier League so far this season – form that is likely to see him included in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for this summer’s World Cup finals.
He was used sparingly at the start of the campaign, but has started eighteen of the Reds last twenty league matches since December 1st, ending any speculation that he could be sent out of loan.
Of Gerrard, Sterling has said he “couldn’t ask for a better captain”, while he has said that Rodgers has made him realise his worth in the team.
Meanwhile, the Metro understands that the club are lining up a £17m summer move for Udinese forward Luis Muriel.
The Reds are expected to strengthen their squad this season, and whilst their attackers have been in fine form, adding support in that area of the field is likely to be on Brendan Rodgers’ agenda.
Muriel, who is keen to secure a move to the Premier League, has scored fifteen goals in forty Serie A appearances for Udinese since signing from Lecce in 2012.
