Liverpool teenage winger Raheem Sterling is satisfied with his progress at Anfield.

Sterling spoke of the positive influence senior Anfield figures like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher have had on his development.

“It is good playing with players like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher,” Sterling told the Jamaican Gleaner.

“There was one time I came on and they were giving me the ball to say go and attack the full-back, so it was good to know that they had confidence in me and see me as a young player who is good enough.

“I have travelled with the first team down to places like Arsenal in the past, but I did not make the bench or anything so it was good to go on.

“Hopefully, this season I will make a full breakthrough for the Liverpool first team and see where it goes from there.”
