Raheem Sterling has revealed his admiration for Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard during his breakthrough season at Anfield.

Sterling, 18, has been one of Liverpool’s standout performers this season as Brendan Rodgers looks to help restore the Merseysiders back to the pinnacle of English football.

And Sterling admits that the England captain’s presence has helped him feel relaxed, with Gerrard an “inspiration” for the teenager.

“He has been brilliant for me. He’s always looking after me, always checking to see if I’m alright,” Sterling told the Daily Mirror.

“I’ve noticed as well that if anyone touches me on the pitch, he’ll always get them straight back with a tackle.

“He’s always looking after me, on the pitch, off the pitch.

“He looked after me when I first joined the club, got into the team and when I was looking for somewhere to live. He’s an inspiration and a great captain.”

Liverpool take on Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.
