Knob Watch: Raheem Sterling’s agent denies saying his client is definitely leaving Liverpool
Raheem Sterling will not sign for Liverpool. No way. No how. It will not happen. Sterling wants a return to London, which means playing for either Arsenal or Chelsea. Fact.
Shy and retiring agent Aidy Ward is quoted as having told the Evening Standard:
“I don’t care about the PR of the club and the club situation. I don’t care. He is definitely not signing. He’s not signing for £700, £800, £900 thousand a week. He is not signing. My job is to make sure I do the best with them (my clients). If people say I am bad at my job, or they are badly advised it does not matter.”
He then called former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher a “knob”:
“Carragher is a knob. Everybody knows it. Any of the criticism from current pundits or ex-Liverpool players – none of them things matter to me. It is not relevant.”
And then talkSport says it “understands” that Ward said no such thing.
It’s very confusing. Is the Standard wrong? Is talkSport talking rubbish? Is there an imposter pretending to be an agent advising Raheem Sterling?
