Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers calls youngster Raheem Sterling "a big, big talent" after the 17-year-old scored in his side's 3-1 win over Leverkusen.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised the performance of youngster Raheem Sterling during his side's 3-1 win over Leverkusen this afternoon.

Sterling, 17, opened the scoring for the Reds inside ten minutes with a fine solo effort, and Rodgers praised the teenager's movement for the goal.

"Raheem is a big, big talent. That movement for the first goal was very good. Shrugged off a defender, the finish was quality," said the former Swansea boss.

Liverpool begin their Premier League campaign against West Bromwich Albion next Saturday.
