Liverpool star Jordan Henderson has told Raheem Sterling to sign a new deal with the club.
The 24-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year deal worth £100,000 a week to lift some of the gloom after they missed out on the FA Cup final on Sunday.
Now captain-win-waiting Henderson has pleaded with contract rebel Sterling to sign a new deal too.
“He has just got to do whatever he thinks is best but, if I was giving him advice, I would say ‘this is Liverpool’,” said Henderson on the Sky Sports website.
“I think this is best place for him, of course. But, at the end of the day, that decision is up to him.
“He is a fantastic player for us. I hope he stays here and develops with us. He will be a big part of what we are looking to do.”
