Yes, He Is Worth £50,000 pwk Or At Least He Will Be Very Soon

Raheem Sterling has no doubt been one of the jewels in the crown for Liverpool this season as  Brendan Rodgers’s looks to stamp his on his authority at Anfield. But with the 17-year old fastly becoming one of the Premier Leagues most promising young stars, has he learnt to keep his head on the ground.

Various news reports have stated that the youngster is believed looking for a very significant wage increase, somewhere around the 60,000 pwk mark.  Which woul transform him into one of the higher wage earners at Anfield. So I pose the question, on what Merit?

True the youngster has stepped up to the mark and shown his capabilities. However I think the player should listen more to his manager, rather than the little voice inside his head. I don’t think that Raheem would have got as much game time had Liverpool got Dempsey in the last window. However at the moment Rodgers finds himself in a Catch 22 situation.

If he carries on playing him, Raheem may well start start believing in the hype, when in truth he hasn’t not done that much for Liverpool FC as of yet. What he should be doing is taking small steps to an ultimate goal. There is a difference between confidence and arrogance. Hopefully he won’t get too ahead of himself, as he only need only glance at teammate Joe Cole to see were that could lead.

I think Raheem justifies being granted an improved deal at the end of the season, one that reflects his performances as a whole. Football is a funny old game and you never know what might happen, however I can’t see Liverpool bowing down to player pressure.

Hopefully these are all rumours as we’ve all been disappointed seeing a player of such early promise fail to make the grade and I only hope that  Raheem will show the brave, confident character I’ve seen throughout his Liverpool displays and agree’s on what’s best for his future. Maybe after one or two season of consistently performing well for his club, Raheem will have earned his pay rise. But not just yet.

As the Smith song goes “You just haven’t earned it yet, baby”.

Refresh this transfer rumour!

    Wwwwo!!! If it’s no rumour, then he clearly have let things got to his. Has he put us on top or anywhere near ? He’s got talent but too early to make demands. He’s dreaming n since it’s his mommy who calls the shots, that’s where it could have probably came from. He hasn’t done all that much and the last few games I’d have taken him out 5mins into the 2nd half..Opponents seem to have been able to read his movement n his play has somewhat became too predictable that he was too many times intercepted. And he is already making demands ? Ronaldo was the same when he got to ManUre, he was too easily intercepted after a couple of games n it took awhile before Sir Alex fine tuned his game n that’s when he flew to stardom. Raheem can too… but at the moment Mr Rodgers needs to contain the lad n give him a slap on his head before he starts going out of control !!!
