According to The Guardian, the England international did not report for training at Liverpool’s Melwood complex on Thursday morning, citing illness as his reason.
It was the second day in a row that the 20-year-old has failed to attend the Reds’ training session.
The Guardian also claims that Sterling has told Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers that he does not want to play for the team any more.
Former Liverpool defender Beglin believes that it is actually good for the Merseyside ouffit if the Englishman does not attend training sessions.
Sterling is doing #LFC a favour by staying away. You don't want that kind of attitude anywhere near a dressing room.— Jim Beglin (@jimbeglin) July 9, 2015
Should Liverpool sell Raheem Sterling?
If Sterling is determined to leave Liverpool, then the Merseyside outfit should sell him if they get a good offer.
There is no point in keeping hold of a player who does not want to remain at Anfield, and Rodgers should be looking at signing replacements for him.
According to The Guardian, Manchester City are interested in signing Sterling this summer.
Moreover, the youngster is actually a very good and talented footballer who created a many as 75 chances in 35 Premier League appearances last season.
