In an interview, Liverpool star Raheem Sterling has revealed he wants the famous Kop to sing his name. It seems Sterling is trying to win the hearts of Liverpool fans back, after he was was heavily criticized by the media and fans for his interview with BBC.

Raheem Sterling : “Of course, when the crowd is with you, there is nothing better . My ambition is to have my own song from the Kop.

“Last season I loved the song for Luis Suarez – Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho have good ones too.”

Raheem Sterling also revealed his admiration for Steven Gerrard, who will be leaving for the MLS at the end of the season, admitting he was ‘starstruck’ after meeting him for the first time when he was just 15.

“I was 15 when I signed to Liverpool’s youth team, and I have to admit I was starstruck,” he said.

“The first time I saw Stevie I thought he was a fake! I couldn’t believe he was real and not a waxwork.

“My debut came when I was 17, against Wigan. I was first out on the pitch and I couldn’t wait to get on the ball.

“I did four stepovers and a half-cross, half-shot, and every time I got on the ball I ran at the defenders. It was a good day for me.”

Earlier reports in Telegraph suggested Brendan Rodgers is ready to sell Raheem Sterling at a minimum of £50 million. Sterling will be demanding a five-year deal of £200,000 a week that would take the total cost of signing him in excess of £100m. It seems Liverpool are not ready to bow down to Sterling’s huge wage demands, and are willing to sell him for a high fee or force him to stay another year on his existing £35,000-a-week.
