Jamie Carragher: Liverpool Fans Might Turn On Raheem Sterling If He Doesn’t Solve Contract Dispute

Raheem Sterling is reportedly looking avoid contract negotiations with Liverpool until the end of the season, fuelling speculation that the winger may leave Anfield.

Sterling’s current deal runs out in 2017, but it’s believed his current salary of £35,000 a week is a major stumbling block.

And ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has now criticised the 20-year-old on social media, claiming the supporters may soon lose patience with him.

Carragher, who made 508 appearances for Liverpool, believes the situation makes Sterling and his representatives look bad.

He said:

“We all like to maximise what we can earn in any industry but this standoff won’t help his relationship with fans or his performances.

“The fans frustration though also comes from his contract situation, the longer it continues the more frustration there will be and it paints him and his advisors in a bad light.”

The Mirror had reported that Sterling has been offered a lucrative £90,000 a week but that the player’s representatives are looking for double that amount.

The England international has failed to shine in recent weeks, with fans left disappointed following a poor game against Manchester United on Sunday.
