Sterling was on the money - Rodgers

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers felt youngster Raheem Sterling responded with a "fantastic" performance after being thrown into the action against Manchester City.

New boss Rodgers had no qualms about handing the 17-year-old forward his first Barclays Premier League start and he repaid the faith with an eye-catching display. The pacy Sterling gave the City defence, particularly Kolo Toure, plenty to think about as part of a three-man attack with Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini during a pulsating 2-2 draw.

"It was an easy decision. I said when I first came in, I wouldn't judge people on their status, on what they are or what they have done, but on what I see in front of me," Rodgers said.
