Another Twist In The Raheem Sterling Story

liverpool crestRaheem Sterling’s exit from Liverpool took a another turn today. The Times Merseyside football correspondent Tony Barrett reports that the player failed to attend training this morning after phoning-in sick. Liverpool are refusing to comment on his absence. ======= Meanwhile, Stoke have made a last-ditch attempt to hijack Shay Given’s move to Middlesbrough. The Irish international goalkeeper was widely tipped to be moving to Boro after he was released from the final year of his contract with Aston Villa. But Stoke are understood to have entered into the bidding for the 39-year-old and have now moved into pole position to sign the Donegal man.
