Be careful with Sterling - Barnes

Former Liverpool and England midfielder John Barnes tells BBC Radio Merseyside that he hopes Raheem Sterling's inclusion in the senior England squad will not have a detrimental affect on his career.

The 17-year-old winger was a late call-up for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday, despite having only made three starts for the Reds.

Barnes adds that Liverpool fans should not put too much pressure on Sterling to improve the club's fortunes after a poor start to the Premier League season.
