Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling returns to the gym less than 24 hours after landing in England ahead of an important season for Liverpool.

Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling certainly looks committed to Liverpool’s cause next season as he returned to training 24 hours after landing back in England following a disappointing World Cup campaign which saw the Three Lions finish bottom of the group D.

Although England’s plight in Brazil sparked a largely apathetic response from supporters across the country, the performances of Sterling, particularly against Italy, were a major plus and were well-documented by press and supporters alike.

The explosive 19-year-old attacker is expected to play a major part for Liverpool next season, both in the Premier League and Champions League, and looks fully committed to preparing for that expectation.

He played a huge part in Liverpool’s push for the title last season and was arguably one of their top performers by the time the season came to an end, scoring three and creating two goals in his last five Premier League appearances.

After the disappointing news of Suarez’s ban for next season, the expectation on the youngster will only intensify as he looks to carry the burden of the loss of the Reds talisman, along with England team-mates Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert.

A good start is imperative for Liverpool next season if they are to clinch the title and the early start from Sterling is positive start, but there is a long way to go.
