Raheem Sterling is said to be unhappy with comments made by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers over the winger’s new contract, with the player’s representatives insisting that the England international has yet to be offered a professional deal by the Premier League club, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Rodgers recently described a potential decision by Sterling to turn down Liverpool’s contract offer as “very foolish”, a phrase that has not sat kindly with the 17-year-old, the newspaper adds.

Sterling’s agents are also understood to be disappointed that Rodgers spoke publicly in the manner he did, believing it to have been an attempt by the manager to bully Sterling into signing a contract with which he is not happy.

Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre met with the Sterling camp this week, the second time talks have taken place between the respective parties, but no formal contract offer was forthcoming on either occasion.

Sterling has broken into the Liverpool first team this season, two years after moving to Anfield from Queens Park Rangers, and has also made his senior England debut. Sterling can sign a professional deal with the club from when he turns 18 on December 8.
