Rodgers claims tough love the key to Sterling form

Brendan Rodgers has attributed the sparkling early-season form of Raheem Sterling to his “tough love” management style. The 17-year-old has been the talk of Anfield so far this season and secured Liverpool’s first home league win of the campaign against Reading on Saturday with his first Premier League goal.

However, supporters of the Merseyside club have seen the England Under-21 international be on the end of several vociferous dressing downs from manager Rodgers on the Channel 5 documentary on affairs at Anfield, Being: Liverpool.


But according to the Daily Mirror, Rodgers believes that Sterling’s ever-rising confidence must be tempered if he is to continue his rate of development.


Yes, there’s some tough love going on, because he’s still got an awful long way to go,” the manager said.


We want to have him here as a legend for many years. We don’t want him at 17 years of age getting carried away with all the adulation and then at 21 he’s washed up and everyone wants him out.The biggest thing with me is just maintaining the hunger he has now. When he has that and he’s learning and developing he can be a really top player. There’s a long way to go but he’s been a revelation,” Rodgers added.


Following the Reds’ tight win over newly-promoted Reading, the Merseysiders are 12th in the Premier League table with nine points from eight games played ahead of their Europa League clash with Russian financial heavyweights Anzhi on Thursday.
