Steven Gerrard: Liverpool the perfect club for Raheem Sterling
Steven Gerrard urges Raheem Sterling to sign a new Liverpool deal
Steven Gerrard has urged Raheem Sterling to sign a new deal with Liverpool.
The Reds winger is yet to agree a new and improved contract with the England international amid reported interest from Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
He can progress here and become a top, top player here
And Liverpool captain Gerrard believes the Merseyside outfit is the perfect club for the ever-improving 20-year-old Reds forward.
“I hope he signs a new contract because I think this club is perfect for him – certainly for the next few years. He’s going to play most weeks, the fans love him here,” Gerrard wrote in the Telegraph.
“He can progress here and become a top, top player here so I hope the people around him give him the right advice because he should stay. He’s great to watch, great to play with, he’s got that pace. When you look up he’s always giving you an option and that’s what I’ve thrived on throughout my career at Liverpool with the likes of Fernando Torres, Michael Owen.
“There’s nothing better as a midfielder when you look up and see pace running in behind. I saw it on numerous occasions [against Bournemouth] and hopefully it will continue because it stretches teams and creates chances.”
