Jamie Redknapp has advice for Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling

Jamie Redknapp says that Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling should learn from Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie Redknapp has written in The Daily Mail that Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling should look at Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez on how to score goals.

Chile international forward Sanchez is one of the best forwards in the Premier League and is a regular goalscorer.

City attacker Sterling is one of the most promising young players in England, but he is not clinical and does not score enough goals.

The England international, who joined the Citizens from Liverpool in the summer transfer window, bagged a hat-trick against Bournemouth in the 5-1 win at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League game on Saturday afternoon.

Former Tottenham midfielder Redknapp believes that Sterling should add goals to his game and has advised him to learn from Sanchez.

“Alexis Sanchez is one of the best strikers of the ball in the league,” the Englishman wrote in The Daily Mail. “He has 32 goals for Arsenal and seven have come from outside the area.

“That's what Sterling should be aiming for. But technique is something every player can improve and if Sterling works hard on his shooting then he can add another weapon to his arsenal.”

Sterling does need to improve on his finishing, but one should remember that he is only 20 years of age. The youngster has time on his hand, and one needs to be patient with him.

The former Liverpool man’s main job in the City team is to create chances. As long as Sterling keeps doing that, fans should be happy.
