Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Liverpool’s plan to offer teenage starlets Suso, Raheem Sterling and Wisdom a new deal as reward for their progress this season.
17-year-old Sterling has made the biggest impact of the three, and Rodgers has already revealed that he has had discussions with the starlet regarding a new contract. Out of the three youngsters it’s Spaniard Suso that needs an extension quickly as his current contract expires at the end of the season.
“He’s in the last year of his contract, and it’s something we will look at. We did have a couple of offers for Suso in the summer, but I always said I didn’t want him to go. I felt we had a very good young player so let’s keep him here and we will see where he is in a couple of years. We had offers for him to go abroad but he was keen to stay, he understood he was going to get a chance here. He is tactically very good, strong technically with the ball. He makes things happen. I love that type of player. Talent finds space. He is a real talent. He is in the reckoning and he is a good kid as well. I have noticed a big progression in him from the pre-season tour of America – I have seen a real difference in the last couple of months and he has got a good appetite for the game. He is on the same page in terms of the tactical idea for the team. If his fight matches his talent we will have a very good player.”
Let’s hope all three players can be locked into long term deals now that they have broken into the first team.
