id rather loan him to a championship/league 1 side to get a full season of football under his belt rather than just playing in reserve matches, id rather him play competitive football
He doesn't need a full season under his belt at the moment. He's 17. Sure, Chamblerlain has more experience, but we shouldn't look to use Sterling in comparison to him. Gerrard didn't make his debut until he was 18, started his first full season at 19. Same with Carragher. We don't need him to play regular first team football. Continuing to work with the first team squad, working on his technique, his ability on and off the ball with the occasional first team appearance for Liverpool is necessary for him at the moment. Then, next summer, we'll assess where he is at and look at whether a loan will benefit him, or whether he can play a bigger role in the team.
For this year, it would benefit him to remain here. It's very rare that you see 17 year olds loaned out, if they are talented enough for Championship/League One level then, they will certainly be something the club wants to keep a hold of.
