Raheem Sterling: "I used to be a lot more greedy"

Raheem Sterling admits that he used to be a greedy player before his recent improvement.

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has admitted that he is becoming more of a team player under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.

Sterling has been praised for his performances in Liverpool's bid to be crowned Premier League champions, but he concedes that he was too eager to do more on his own in the past.

"I used to be a lot more greedy than I am now — now I'm a bit more for the team," the 19-year-old told Esquire.

"As a young player, you can't be going in thinking you can dribble past everyone. Someone is bound to slide-tackle you or give you a dead leg."

Sterling was nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, but lost out to Chelsea's Eden Hazard.
