Rodgers: Huge salaries ruining England's youngsters

Brendan Rodgers believes young players in England are losing their hunger for football because of the Premier League's huge salaries..

It's a big problem with British players. Why? Because the reward is no longer there, they lose their hunger. Young players driving about, I say driving about, they buy a new Range Rover Sports before they have even got their driving licence. > >

– Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers

In a Telegraph interview, Liverpool's manager admits he will need to be careful about rewarding 19 year-old Raheem Sterling with a new contract.

Reports last week suggested the England youngster could be offered up to four times more than he currently earns, but Rodgers will take a measured approach to negotiations

It will be something that's done, but we need to be careful. Raheem is a kid who has propelled himself on to another level. He got rewarded for that, and that will always be the case here. But we have to be careful because when you reward young players too quickly, that will be their downfall.
