Gerrard issues transfer warning to Sterling

first_imgSteven Gerrard has warned Raheem Sterling his career could stall if he leaves Liverpool.It’s looking increasingly likely the England international’s time at Anfield will come to an end this summer with contract talks have broken down in acrimonious fashion, with his agent, Aidy Ward, claiming his client wouldn’t sign a new deal even for £900,000 a week.But Gerrard, who himself called time on his career on Merseyside at the end of the season, fears the 20-year-old could live to regret his decision if he chooses to move.“I wish I did know [what will happen] because I have been reading a lot about him myself,” said the 35-year-old, speaking at the launch of BT Sport’s Champions League coverage. “I think the only two people that know are Raheem and his agent.“I think for the player’s sake and for all of us fans out there he needs to make the decision quickly. I hope he stays. I think for his development as a player he has a fantastic manager to look after him, a great set of team-mates.“I think it’s important he plays week in week out, keeps trying to learn and strive to become a world-class player.“I think the frustrating thing for me would be if he went to a club and became a squad player and just another number and he didn’t have that chance to progress. That’s the risk.” Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard 1last_img
