Sterling to enjoy post-Christmas break from action
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is preparing to give Raheem Sterling an extended break from first-team action after his side’s busy Christmas schedule.
Rodgers is keen to avoid ‘burning out’ one of his top stars, and will therefore ensure that Sterling enjoys some much needed time off, after rarely missing out on a place in his team this year.
Meanwhile, former Bayern Munich star Owen Hargreaves has urged Raheem Sterling to reject the overtures of the German giants – claiming the 20-year-old is not ready for such a move.
