Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling says he’s still learning to be an effective centre-forward, off the back of an impressive run of form in front of goal, reports Sky
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers made a tactical shift to get the best from his most creative players, and it has seemed to have the desired effect, with Sterling – now operating as the central striker – having scored four goals in eight games.
The England international recently scored the equaliser against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup, and has revealed he’s still getting used to the role, but enjoys the responsibility.
“It is a role I am learning and adapting to, but that is something if you want to be a good player you have to adapt to different positions, and that is something I am keen on doing. I am keeping focused and trying to get my game to the next level and chip in with more goals and assists,” he said.
