You get the feeling that he´s been around forever but Raheem Sterling is still a very young lad. Today he leaves his teens and turns 20. Congratulations Raheem!
The Jamaican-born attacker switched Queens Park Rangers for Liverpool as a 15-year old in 2010. He made his Red debut still only 15. He broke into the first team a couple of years later when he made 24 appeareances in the 2012/13 season.
Last season he took another step and became a regular and scored nine times in the league. He started well this season but his form has swayed and he hasn´t found the net in two and a half months. Play-wise he is on the up right now but still not at the level of last season. He seems to be trying too hard and has forgot how to do the simple things. Probably he feels the burden of being the go-to-guy with Luis Suarez gone and Daniel Sturridge injured.
So far Sterling has just found the net three times in 2014/15 and is waiting for his first ever goal in the Champions League. Why not make it happen tomorrow when Liverpool must beat Basel to progress to the knockout stages. It would be perfect for Sterling to break his European duck just after being 20 because then:
We Go Again.
