Thierry Henry says that Liverpool midfielder Raheem Sterling should not listen to the bad advice
Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry says that Liverpool midfielder Raheem Sterling should not listen to the bad advice and try and force a move away from the Merseyside club.
After weeks of speculation about his future, Sterling is thought to have confirmed his decision to leave Liverpool with immediate effect. He has two years left on his contract, but interest from Manchester City and Chelsea could force Liverpool into selling the player for around £ 40 million. At just 20 years of age, Sterling is the start of his career.
After having represented the likes of Monaco, Arsenal, and Barcelona, Henry is well experienced to know that a move at this stage to a top club will likely see his career fall off. It has been highly speculated that Sterling’s agent has been a major factor in this transfer controversy. His agent has been constantly in the media speaking about his player not being ready to sign a contract even if offered £ 1 million in wages. Henry says that Sterling and his agent could have dealt with the matter in a much better way without having to drag the club in the middle of the media storm.
Sterling recently received the young Player of the Year award from the club, but he was booed by his own supporters."I think we all know that he's been receiving some bad advice.You can't go out there and talk about your contract in the press. You have to respect your fans, respect the club that you play for.If you want to leave Liverpool or not, when you make the decision about leaving or staying, then do it. Don't discuss yourself in the paper.When I was young I had a problem with Real Madrid and Monaco because some guys that were around me were putting stuff in my head,” said Henry.
