Sterling keen to repay Rodgers’ faith

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is keen to repay the faith shown in him by manager Brendan Rodgers, according to Sky Sports.

The 19 year old is currently enjoying his best spell in his short career so far – starting the club’s last ten consecutive games and scoring three times.

He is keen to continue his good form as the Merseyside club look to break into the top four for the first time in five seasons.

The former Queens Park Rangers youngster is also pushing for an international recall ahead of the World Cup finals in Brazil, where he has been tipped to feature in the absence of Theo Walcott.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports also understand that Fabio Borini is keen on returning to Liverpool after his loan spell with Sunderland has finished.

The Italy international moved to the Stadium of Light after struggling to hold down a first team place at Anfield, and has impressed by scoring key goals in wins over Chelsea, Manchester United and North East rivals Newcastle United.

Finally, former Reds forward Luis Garcia has announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 35, according to the Mirror.

The former Spain international spent three years with Liverpool, winning both the Champions League in ’05 and the FA Cup the following season.
