Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has promised that he will develop into a better player next season.

The 19-year-old was in fine form for the Reds in the 2013/14 campaign, scoring 10 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions, in addition to providing nine assists.

Although Liverpool fell agonisingly short of lifting their maiden Premier League title, the youngster was rewarded for his impressive outings with a spot in England’s World Cup squad.

And Sterling, who admitted that he learnt a lot this season, is however, unwilling to take his foot off the pedal.


But the youngster was quick to add that Liverpool’s superb season was due to a collective effort and not his individual displays.

"It's definitely been a great experience for me. Hopefully next season we can go again and try to be right up there again”, Sterling told his club’s official site.

"With the experience I've gained from this season, hopefully I can put that into the team.

"Personally, for any 19-year-old to play in a team like this is a great achievement, but I won't stop here – I'll keep going, keep working for the team and hopefully develop into a better player next season.

"But enough talk about me – it's been a great team performance throughout the season and so credit goes to the boys."

Sterling, whose current deal with Liverpool runs until 2018, has two senior caps for England.
