Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson has backed Raheem Sterling to be a key player for England at the Euros despite his poor EPL form. Roy recently revealed that he is a great admirer of the Englishman because he is a fine player.
According to him, Sterling is an important part of the England team, and his ability on the pitch will speak for him when the tournament begins.
Hodgson added that the skill set Sterling has, his ability to beat people, get into goalscoring positions, score and set up chances is one of a kind.
His words, “I am a great admirer of Raheem, I think he is a fine player.”
“It is a wonderful position to be in if you’re Pep Guardiola that you believe you have other players you prefer to use to Raheem, but I am pretty certain in terms of England, he will still be an important player and an important cog in the wheel because he has so much ability.”
“The skill set he has and ability he has to beat people, get into goalscoring positions and score and set up chances, they are hard skillsets to find, and a great quality Raheem has got, and one I have always admired in him, is he is not a player who stays up there and waits for the ball to come to him.”
“He makes certain he goes in search of it and when he loses it, he gets it back and plays an important role in the team’s defensive work. These are things we as coaches expect of our players these days, but it’s not always easy to get it.”
