Metro have Liverpool fans shaking their heads in outrage here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they carry quotes coming from Raheem Sterling’s agent.
The Liverpool winger looks like leaving the club at the end of the season after refusing to sign a new deal, but as our regulars note, there are ways to go about things, and the way Sterling and his agent have handled the situation is shocking – and classless.
Not only have they hit out at Liverpool as a club, but Aidy Ward is now attacking Liverpool legends, and we think this is the beginning of the end for Sterling.
Aidy Ward claimed: ‘He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900,000-a-week. He is not signing.
‘I am not worried. Worried is making a decision not knowing what is going to happen. Every Premier League club will make a bid for him.
‘Carragher is a knob. Everybody knows it. Any of the criticism from current pundits or ex-Liverpool players – none of them things mater to me. It is not relevant.’
As one of our punters notes, those comments make demands for birthday cakes and sports cars seem run of the mill, and frankly, the only person who has embarrassed themselves here is Sterling’s agent, and the disrespect shown to not only Liverpool but Carragher is utterly shocking according to our landlord, and we have to agree.
