[Tweets]: Fans react on Raheem Sterling’s decision to leave Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers and Raheem Sterling

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is expected to inform the club this week that he wants to leave in the summer, according to reports from The Guardian

Sterling had previously told Brendan Rodgers that any talks over his future would be postponed until the end of the season as he wanted to concentrate solely on his football. It is understood that his agent, Aidy Ward, will now tell Liverpool’s manager and the chief executive Ian Aye that the England international will not sign a new deal and wishes to move on. 


The 21-year-old gave an unauthorised interview to BBC earlier this year where he admitted that he had rejected a 100k-per week deal from Liverpool, and stated his ambition to win trophies that had generated adverse publicity. 

Sterling is said to be unhappy with the negative headlines surrounding his contract dispute as also the absence of Champions League football at Anfield next season. Liverpool have only managed eight points from the last 24 available and missed out on a top four finish and the Reds were also eliminated from the FA Cup by Aston Villa in the semi-final. 

It seems like fans are divided on opinions about Sterling’s decision to leave the club. Let us take a look at some of the reactions:


Premier League clubs Manchester City and Arsenal are thought to be interested in Sterling, who still has two years remaining on his contract at Anfield. Therefore, Liverpool are in no rush to sell him immediately.
