Manchester City’s newest signing Raheem Sterling has admitted that the manner of his exit from Liverpool has left something of a sour taste.
Sterling has scored 16 goals in the last two seasons for Liverpool, and he is sure to become an even more unsafe player as he gets older.
Raheem Sterling has denied he threw a “sickie” to miss Liverpool training … and says the club doctor TOLD him to stay away. “I think I made the right decision”. In the changing room my stomach started hurting.
“I’m good with everyone at the football club, the manager, the players and I wish them well for the new season”, Sterling continued. “I still went out and trained though”, Sterling said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“It’s a competition that gives me an opportunity to show my ability on the biggest platform”. As a young player you want to be challenging yourself in the best competitions, against the best players and with the best players.
“I think it’s down to Jordon to grasp that position now Raheem has gone”, the Daily Mail reports him as saying.
This is one of those things that can only happen in the mad, obsessive world of sports. It was really flattering that City wanted me so much. “I hope the pitch will at least be in normal condition”.
“That’s exactly what happened”.
The Frenchman feels his side were in need of improvements if they are going to fight for the title this season, as he heaped praise on his two new teammates.
There has been a lot of talk in the last few years about whether “money is ruining football”, and no club seems to greater embody that the Manchester City.
Should have thought about that a bit sooner then, eh, Raheem? “You just have to deal with it and get on with it”. Ibe was also impressive at Stoke where he played well in a defensive role showing his versatility. “I like to sit on my couch and walk my dog (a Staffordshire terrier called Vado, after a Jamaican musician). I’m happy to have down time, walk my dog and chill”.
