Raheem Sterling says he is happy at Liverpool, and hopes the current situation involving a new contract will be resolved soon, reports the Liverpool Echo.
Sterling was speaking after the Reds 2-0 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s, in which the forward bagged his 10th goal of the season to move the club within two points of fourth placed Manchester United.
“It’s a great win for us,” Sterling said.
“We knew we had to come here and do the job and we did that. The boys defended really well and we took our chances when they came.
“You have to win dirty at times and we did that today. That was the most important thing.
“It’s always good to get on the scoresheet and it was especially pleasing that it was the goal that killed the game off.
“We knew we were top four material from the start of the season. Obviously, it didn’t go as planned at the start but now we’re showing what we can do.
“Credit to the boys, we just keep to need keep performing and keep fighting and then we’ll definitely get to where we want to be.
“All the boys are really up for it. Everyone is fighting hard for the team and defending with their lives.”
Sterling is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract with the Reds, with talks having dragged on for several months. However, the 20-year-old insists he is happy at Anfield, and hopes an agreement can be reached shortly.
“We’re working on it and hopefully it will be sorted soon,” Sterling said.
