Raheem Sterling vows to get Liverpool back in Champions League

Raheem Sterling has been facing a lot of criticism lately for not extending his current contract with Liverpool, despite being offered an “incredible deal” as described by Brendan Rodgers. According to Sky Sports, Raheem Sterling will not discuss his future at Liverpool until the end of the season as he now wants to concentrate on his football. Sky sources also suggest Sterling is ‘100 per cent committed to the club’.

Speaking to SportsYoungTalent, the Jamaica-born winger vowed to get back Liverpool in the Champions League and improve his goal scoring ratio. Sterling has already scored 10 goals this season, and also found the back of the net against Lithuania on Friday.

He said: “We’ve been in great form in recent weeks and I am just trying to contribute as much as I can to obviously help the team get into the top four. But I think we are more than capable of doing that.

“We’ve all got weaknesses. My main focus now is to try and improve my goalscoring ratio, practising my finishing in training day in, day out and trying to get to the level I know I can get to. It only takes a matter of time.”

Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling is fit to face top 4 rivals Arsenal after he was allowed to return to Melwood following England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on Friday. It was earlier reported Sterling had a toe injury, despite that Roy Hodgson started him against Lithuania. The 20-year-old scored his first goal and assisted another for the national side as they beat Lithuania 4-0.
