Sterling targets top-four finish for Liverpool

premier league
Liverpool's Raheem Sterling wants the club to break into the top four of the Premier League next season.
Sterling played 24 times in the Premier League this term as he helped Brendan Rodgers' side to finish seventh, but believes Champions League qualification is the next step.

Liverpool have not featured in Europe's premier club competition since 2010, when they were eliminated in the group stage, but Sterling feels he and his team-mates can build on their impressive late-season form in the next campaign.

When asked by Sky Sports News where the club should target, Sterling asserted: "I'd say top four, definitely.

"As we ended the season we can see how strong the team has become. Hopefully we can get a good start to the season and just maintain that."

Since making his debut in 2012 against Wigan, Sterling has gone on to become a key part of the Liverpool first team.

The England international believes Rodgers is one of the main reasons for his development over the past few months. 

"He's a top guy. He is one of them who is not just interested when you are playing well at the moment, he also looks at players who are not playing or young players," Sterling continued.

"Liverpool should be really grateful that they have a manager like that because he is a big bonus for the team and the players, and obviously his playing style is really attractive.

"He has also got some players in during the January transfer window and they are putting the performances in, so these are really exciting times for Liverpool now next season."
