England flyer opens up on Rodgers and the Reds’ title challenge.
Liverpool wide man Raheem Sterling has hit back at “silly online rumours” claiming that he had as many as eight children, according to reports on BBC Sport Online.
The England international is currently enjoying a fine campaign for the Merseyside giants, however, the 19-year-old has now taken the opportunity to try and set straight rumours about his private life that have been doing the rounds on the internet.
In fact, contrary to popular opinion, Sterling does not have eight kids, just one, Melody Rose – “the best thing that’s ever happened” to him.
“It made people think badly of me, that I’m not really grounded, that I’m out and about doing loads of madness,” he said.
Meanwhile, the winger also reserved special praise for Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, claiming: “He’s helped me massively. Not only with my footballing game but if I need someone to talk to off the field he’s there for me. I’ve got to really give credit to him and thank him a lot.”
And Sterling says the Liverpool players are now confident they can win the club’s first title since 1990: “I don’t want to be the one that says Liverpool can go on and win the league. But there’s a real belief and togetherness in the squad, we’re all working for each other. We all know what the dream is at the end of it.”
