Liverpool duo offered chance to play at the Olympics
Liverpool duo Craig Bellamy and Raheem Sterling have both received letters enquiring about their availability for Team GB at this summer’s Olympics, claims the Daily Mail.
Team GB coach Stuart Pearce is allowed to pick three players in his squad over the age of 23 and could target Bellamy who has impressed for Liverpool since making his free transfer switch from Manchester City last August.
However, the news is likely concern Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish and Welsh coach Chris Coleman who will be aware of Bellamy’s troublesome knee problem which has seen the 32-year-old restricted to sporadic appearances.
Sterling, 17, has yet to make an appearance for the Liverpool first team but is another player who is said to be in the frame for a place in Team GB that will be looking to land a Gold medal under the stewardship of current England interim boss Pearce.
David Beckham, Joe Cole and Ryan Giggs have also been mentioned as potential candidates for Team GB.
