Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling has committed his future to Liverpool by signing a long-term contract, the club announced on Friday.
It was rumored that the 18 year old was attracting interest from Manchester United and Arsenal but Sterling decided to put his signature on a new deal at Anfield, putting an end to speculation that he might leave Liverpool football club.
He told Liverpoolfc.com:
“It’s every 18-year-old’s dream. I’m just really grateful to be at such a big club like this. There’s a lot more to be done. I haven’t begun yet, as the manager has said. Hopefully I can kick on after the New Year and try to do my best for the team and the football club.”
Sterling joins Luis Suarez, Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Suso and Jonjo Shelvey all who have committed their long-term future to Liverpool under new manager Brendan Rodgers. The future looks bright.
