Rodgers warns of overpaying Sterling

Published Add your comment

Manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is unconcerned about the future of Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling.

Contract negotiations are ongoing between the Reds and Sterling, who has just turned 18, the age at which players are permitted to sign long-term deals with clubs.

Rodgers said in the Daily Telegraph: "I don't want the club or the kid being affected by over-the-odds demands. I think there's a value I see in a young player that hasn't achieved anything. All the figures that get bandied about for kids these days can destroy them."
