LIVERPOOL, England (AP) – Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling is putting off contract talks with the club until the end of the season, saying “it has never been about money”.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said the 20-year-old Sterling, one of English football’s top young talents, has been made an “incredible offer”. Sterling says he would have signed a new contract “straightaway, probably for far less money than being said now” if it had been offered last summer, after Liverpool had finished second in the English Premier League.

The England international tells the BBC that “the timing was a bit off” to discuss a new deal during this season, and “I just want to take the time to think about what I’ve achieved in my career so far, where I need to go”.

Liverpool are fifth in the league, outside the Champions League qualification spots.
