Brendan Rodgers: Raheem Sterling will stay at Liverpool

Published 1 Comments

Football News

In a shock turn of events Brendan Rodgers has finally broken his silence on the issue surrounding supposed want-away winger Raheem Sterling, claiming that the player will remain at Liverpool until the end of his contract.

The news comes as a big surprise to many following the situation, as Sterling's agent had recently stated the player wanted out and would not sign any offer, regardless of the money involved.

Back and forth

Liverpool cancelled a scheduled meeting this morning between themselves and Sterling as the player's agent had been interfering in the situation. However in a bizarre turn, Rodgers has made it clear publicly that he intends to keep Sterling at Anfield until his pact with the clubs runs out.

Speaking to the BBC, Rodgers said: "Raheem has two years left on his deal and I expect him to see that two years through."

Talks pending?

Although the rumours still circulate, the statement will surely give Rodgers some time to discuss the future of his brightest star and maybe buy himself a period in which to make sense of the situation. 

Sterling's agent, Aidy Ward, hasn't helped matters, making it difficult for the player to decide on his own future. He has claimed his client will not be at Liverpool in the near future and is apparently adamant that a contract will not be signed. 

Frustration from the stands

Liverpool fans have reacted, understandably, in a negative manner to the news, with the player being booed at the club's end of season awards and high profile ex-Liverpool men labelling the player disrespectful. 

Liverpool fans what do you think of the whole Sterling situation? Is there any hope he might stay? Let us know in the comments box below.
