Raheem Sterling is widely thought of around Anfield as the “next big thing” with some outstanding performances in the Liverpool academy and reserve teams.
Sterling is still relatively new to the Liverpool setting after joining from the Queens Park Rangers academy back in February, 2010. He had spent seven years with the London side before making the move to Merseyside.
The young winger caught the world’s attention when he banged in five goals for Liverpool’s youth team in a 9-0 win against Southend in the FA Youth Cup.
This is obviously becoming a problem for some of the major clubs as we have seen with Manchester United duo Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba. What should be done to keep the star youngsters at their clubs?
He is set to feature in the NextGen Series which is a club competition for under-19. Liverpool’s youth will face off in the semifinal against Ajax tomorrow and Tottenham scouts are rumoured to be in attendance.
Can Liverpool afford to lose one of their brightest talents?
