Raheem Sterling has revealed that he chose to quit Twitter and Facebook so he can focus on performing for Liverpool.

The 18-year-old winger has earned plenty of new admirers this season after being handed a run in the Reds’ first-team under new boss Brendan Rodgers, making 34 appearances and scoring twice in all competitions.

Sterling had built up a considerable following on the social networks but opted to delete his accounts earlier in the year.

And the teenager, who earned his first senior England cap against Sweden back in November, says he will not be returning to the websites.

“I’ve deleted my Twitter and Facebook, and come off BBM,” Sterling told Liverpool’s website.

“I just need to get my head down, really, and concentrate on my football, start scoring goals, stuff like that.

“I’m going to be more and more professional. I won’t be back on there. Me and Twitter are finished!”
