Rodgers speaks out over Sterling future.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has spoken out about the contract situation of unsettled winger Raheem Sterling, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The Reds boss is unsure when the 20-year-old will finally put pen to paper on a new deal, but is confident that an agreement will be struck between the player, his agent and the club before too long.
Rodgers also added that he believes Sterling is happy with life at Anfield and not looking for an exit, and that the ongoing contract dispute will not distract the player from putting in his best performances for the good of the team.
Sterling first broke onto the scene with some fantastic displays last season, but has been one of many Liverpool players to suffer a dip in form this term, with the club suffering worse results as a whole in both the Premier League and the Champions League.
“I think if you look at his performance that will do the talking,” Rodgers said. “He is very happy at the club, he likes being where he has been given an opportunity to develop.
“There has been no unhappiness and it is between the club and his representatives to sort out a deal. I am sure that will get sorted out in time.”
