Fernando Torres, Michael Owen and Ian Rush are some of the big names I can remember whose careers practically stalled once they walked out the Anfield door. Now, the most recent name that could end-up in that cursed list is apparently Sterling.
“Rejoice”, most LFC fans will say. Especially when Sterling was one of the names blamed for England’s pathetic performance. But is does bother a little, given the fact that he could be the youngest ex Liverpool player to suffer that ‘curse’
There are no scientific proof of course, instead there could be a simple reason behind it. Fans
These are some ex-Liverpool stars whose emotional impact influences their performance. And because there are no other fans better than Liverpool supporters who does that with such devastating effect, that when they walk out of Anfield they feel a huge vacuum during their performances.
Unfortunately, for Sterling, there’s no way back. Not after the way he handled his departure. Sick advise, greed and immaturity is rotting his career elsewhere. The recent England debacle will only cause even further damage to Sterling; a mental hangover so huge that even the incoming Guardiola would find it hard to reverse.
The Liverpool curse look to have struck again.
As much as Sterling should serve as an example for young players whose ego and agents destroy their careers, I would like to see him apply his god given skills a lot longer, (Championship teams can afford his value and wage now I reckon), just to keep reminding other potential Liverpool stars of the Liverpool support and the Curse.
