With the international break soon upon us, it’s worth noting that the next round of Premier League fixtures sees Manchester City take on Liverpool.

After City prised Raheem Sterling away from Merseyside last summer, the game is sure to have an extra layer of hype surrounding it.

Speaking ahead of England’s games against Spain and France, Sterling has opened up about the move from one part of the Northwest to another.

“I did what I thought was right at the time for me and my heart was saying that is what I should do,” he explained.

“It’s what I have done and I have no regrets.


“They [City and Liverpool] are both two big football clubs and I am just happy to be where I am and I am happy with my development at this moment in time. I want to continue my development and win trophies.

“Part of it was my development, trying to get myself better as a player, definitely help my club and definitely help my country in big tournaments.

“I go into training every day and see the players of that calibre that I am workingwith – like Vinny [Kompany], Sergio [Aguero], David [Silva], Joe [Hart].

“There is only one thing you can do and that is improve with players like that, who have been around for many years and achieving stuff.

“I’m happy to be top of the league and I’ve scored in some important games. We’ve got a good bunch of lads there who’ve helped me settle in really well.

“I am just happy to be in a squad like that and hopefully I can continue my development and win trophies in the future with the football club.”

It’s a good job Raheem has cleared things up. We’re sure that all Liverpool supporters will now be completely understanding and forgiving of his decision to leave.
