Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has hailed versatile forward Raheem Sterling, insisting that he is a fine talent. 

As reported by talkSPORT, the Reds chief, who was speaking after watching his side beat Premier League champions Manchester City by two goals to one at Anfield, has praised the player's understanding of the game. 

Outstanding talent 

In fact, Rodgers suggested that his forward players were outstanding against the Citizens, but gave special praise to Sterling, who has been in fine form of late. 

Rodgers told reporters: “If you look at the front three they were outstanding. Raheem Sterling didn’t score today but what a talent he is, not just with the ball, but his general understanding of the game.

“How he presses and how he recognises how to press, and you saw his strength today against the likes of Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala.

“The two boys [Sterling and Coutinho] in behind [the striker] have been outstanding since November. They’re very, very bright footballers who are technically very good.”

He must stay 

There's no doubt about it, the Reds chief must keep Sterling at the club for the long term. The England international, alongside the likes of Adam Lallana and Co., is only going to improve on Merseyside. 

Staying at Anfield would no doubt benefit both club and player, as they go in search of long term success.
