Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling Defended Over ‘Big Club’ AmbitionLatest News, Sports Thursday, May 21st, 2015
Raheem Sterling should not be criticised for “being ambitious and wanting to win trophies”, according to former Blackburn striker Chris Sutton.
The Liverpool forward, 20, is expected to tell manager Brendan Rodgers and chief executive Ian Ayre on Friday that he wants to leave Anfield this summer.
Several former Reds players have since criticised Sterling and his agent.
“I don’t think it’s about money,” said Sutton, who feels Sterling “only wants to go to a big club”.
Sutton, who left relegated Blackburn to join Chelsea for £10m in 1999, added on BBC Radio 5 live: “Should we be criticising Sterling for being ambitious and wanting to win trophies?
“Liverpool have spent one season in six in the Champions League and have won one trophy in the last nine years.”
