Raheem Sterling has revealed that he wants Liverpool fans to come up with a song specifically for him, as they have for other star names such as Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho.
The Reds’ winger is currently embroiled in a contract saga with the Anfield club, which has plunged his future into doubt.
A recent interview with the BBC saw Sterling reveal that he’s ready to hold off on negotiations to extend his deal on Merseyside – which expires in just over two years’ time – that he’s rejected a £100,000-per-week offer and that interest from Arsenal is flattering.
And now he’s issued his demands to Kopites by claiming that he would love to hear his name sung aloud by fans, as he does for other stars such as Gerrard and Coutinho:
“My ambition is to have my own song from the Kop.” He is quoted by the Liverpool Echo. “Last season I loved the song for Luis Suarez — Gerrard and [Philippe] Coutinho have good ones too.”
Despite having made over 100 appearances for Liverpool, Sterling is just 20-years-old and is considered to be one of the best young players one Europe.
