Rodgers Is Right: Raheem Sterling IS The Best Young Player In Europe – Here’s Why

Brendan Rodgers is having a fine season at the helm of Liverpool football club. The Reds are currently top of the Premier League and looking likely to pick up their first ever league title in this era, and there have been a number of reasons for that. One is Raheem Sterling, who Rodgers has described as the best young player in Europe. I agree sincerely, and here’s why.

Still only 19, Sterling has had an incredible season this time round and is one of the first names on the team sheet. Last season Rodgers left him out of a large chunk of games because he didn’t want to burn him out, but this season Sterling has 30 Premier League appearances to his name.

He has scored nine goals and notched four assists, which for a teenager is a remarkable return.

The way he runs the Liverpool attack with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge is superb and exciting to watch, and he has been so crucial to the Reds being top.

I can’t think of anyone in world football who is as young as him who has had such an impact this season. Especially not in an attacking sense. Julian Draxler and Max Meier of Schalke have had strong seasons, but Sterling trumps both as far as I am concerned.

I for one am in agreement with Rodgers.
