Former Liverpool legend Gerrard urges Sterling to stay

Former Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard believes Raheem Sterling could become a club great if he stays at Anfield. The 20 year old has rejected a new deal with the Merseysiders and has told boss Brendan Rodgers he wants to leave.

"I think there's a position there for him to be the number one player in the team," said Gerrard, who will be plying his trade with LA Galaxy in the United States.

"He can be adored and have that adulation from supporters that the likes of Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres have experienced."
