Brendan Rodgers: 'I've no issue with Raheem Sterling'

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists that his relationship with Raheem Sterling has not been affected by the winger's expected departure from Anfield.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that his relationship with Raheem Sterling has not been damaged.

Manchester City have reportedly agreed a £49m fee with the Merseysiders for the England international.

Sterling has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield after he refused to sign a new £100,000-a-week contract.

"The situation is very simple," talkSPORT quotes Rodgers as saying. "The club has agreed a deal with another club for Raheem subject to a medical that'll go through.

"Raheem and I have always remained very strong in our relationship and that remained the case when we left. There is no issue there. I spoke to Raheem at length yesterday, so there's no issue.

"The two clubs have agreed a deal, and he will move on. But at this moment in time the interest is with the players that are here."

Sterling has scored 23 goals in 129 appearances for Liverpool.
