Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge has backed Raheem Sterling to become one of the world’s best players, according to the Sky Sports website.
The Liverpool man has emerged as the star man for club and country in the past year, with Brendan Rodgers desperate to keep him at Anfield.
But Sturridge said: “He can go as far as he wants to go. I am proud of him for everything he is achieving.
“I think if he continues to work hard and continues to believe in himself and has no distractions in his life – there’s none now and I hope that continues. He’s level headed and that’s what I like about him.”
