New Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says winger Raheem Sterling is not bothered by criticism after the youngster was booed in England's goalless draw against the Republic of Ireland.
The 20-year-old refused to sign a new contract with the Reds and is expected to leave Anfield to join Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United, all teams who will feature in next season's Champions League.
Spanish giants Real Madrid are also rumoured to be ready to make a move for the Englishman who produced a below-par performance for Roy Hodgson's side before being replaced by Andros Townsend in the second half.
"He is so strong-minded, and it will make him a stronger person and make him better," Henderson is quoted as saying by Express Sport.
"He will concentrate on doing his best for the team. He did that today, trying to create things and get on the ball all the time. Hopefully he can do the same next week.
"He deals with it [the boos] very well. I don't think he lets that bother him at all."
