Brendan Rodgers warns of Sterling burn-out

By

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says England boss Roy Hodgson should be aware that winger Raheem Sterling runs the risk of burnout.

The 19-year-old became an extremely important player for both the Reds and the English national team but Rodgers believes the youngster should not be overused to avoid injury risks.

"We certainly have to be aware of it [fatigue]," Rodgers is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"It's easy just to turn around and say 'he is 19 and can play every day of the week'. But it doesn't work like that.

"There will be periods when they need to rest. And, of course, when you give them the rest because you are planning ahead, you get accused of picking the wrong team.

"He is a big talent. The key is to try and nurture it, while also understanding the best players want to play in the games. And he will certainly have enough games this season.

"I think Roy and his staff would have to look at that. He'll want to ensure the games are won but I'm sure resting players will be the objective, especially when you're winning the game comfortably," he said.

"We lost Emre Can when they [Germany Under-21s] were 6-0 up on a pitch which was awful. But I'm not here to tell the England staff how to do their job."
