Liverpool dazzler Sterling: Gerrard won't let me get big head

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling says there's no chance of him getting ahead of himself.

The flying winger may be one of the hottest new talents in the English game but all it takes to keep him in check is a glance around Liverpool's dressing room.

"High-end players like Steven Gerrard will always make sure that your feet are firmly on the floor," Sterling explained. "I'm not that type of person (to get carried away) so I don't think that would be a problem really.

"It's great to have a manager that has belief in you. For a young player, that's all you cry out for.

"I also now have the confidence to go and play, (especially) as I have players like Luis (Suarez) and Stevie giving me encouragement."
