Rodgers: Wantaway Liverpool star not leaving

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that Raheem Sterling will not leave Anfield this summer – even if he does not agree a new contract.

The England international’s future has been a point of contention in recent months, with the 20-year-old refusing a new deal worth £100,000-a-week from the Merseyside outfit.

With Sterling revealing to the BBC that he found Arsenal’s reported interest in him flattering, the media have caused a fracas leading up to the summer transfer window.

However, despite Liverpool looking increasingly likely to miss out on Champions League qualification, Rodgers has stated that Sterling will not be sold at the end of the season.

“We’ve made our position clear from the beginning and the owners are very much supportive of that. Raheem won’t be going anywhere this summer, even if there’s not a deal agreed,” the Northern Irish manager is quoted as saying by The Guardian.

Sterling is one of the most promising young players in English football and is clearly eager to win silverware and play in the Champions League.

Liverpool faced a similar situation with Luis Suarez, but refusing him an Anfield exit played a significant part in the Merseysiders almost winning the Premier League title last season.
