Liverpool contract latest: Henderson should be demanding a new deal, insists Pearce

first_imgStuart Pearce believes it is Jordan Henderson, not Raheem Sterling, who should be demanding an improved Liverpool deal.Sterling has been all over the back pages this week after it was revealed he has turned down a £100,000 a week contract offer.But Pearce feels Henderson, who has 12 months left on his contract and reportedly rejected an £80,000 a week offer last month, is the player the Reds should be rewarding.“To give a young player [like Sterling] at 20 years old the top wage in your dressing room, considering there is someone like Steven Gerrard still in the dressing room, is wrong in my opinion. But if you don’t do it, that player will leave,” Pearce said on the Sports Bar.“You’ve got to look at a window of time and say this player gets paid that, that’s what we value him at, and often you’re valuing him at that to stop other people coming in and buying him.“But of all of these [players at Liverpool], Henderson is the one who should be holding out for that bargaining power and saying, ‘I’m delivering things, I’m going to be the next captain of Liverpool, I’m going to be the next captain of England hopefully’, and he should be the one pushing the buttons.”last_img read more
