Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has told Raheem Sterling he needs to sign a new contract with the club.
The departing Kop skipper believes the contract rebel must stay at Anfield to make the best of his career.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “For me, I am always going to be biased towards this club.
“My advice to Raheem is he needs a manager who is going to play him, to coach him, to believe in him.
“I think there is no one better for him than Brendan Rodgers. I think he should sign a new deal.
“Brendan is a fantastic man manager, he puts a lot of time and effort into every player in the squad.
“The danger for younger players is they want it all too soon and go to another club and just become a number.”
