Raheem Sterling: ‘City is a step-up’

Manchester City winger says he made the right call to leave Liverpool

Manchester City star Raheem Sterling has taken a swipe at Liverpool by saying his move to the Etihad Stadium was a step-up for his career.

The England international left Anfield over the summer after City agreed to pay £50million for his services, and he’s continued to back his decision to quit Merseyside.

It was a controversial transfer and a saga that lasted all summer, with it beginning halfway through last season after Sterling‘s interview with the BBC.

The winger wasn’t a liked figure around Merseyside after that interview, and with the help of his agent, he was further distanced from the club and it’s fans.

However, he eventually got his move to City and he’s admitted that it’s a big step-up for him and his career.

Sterling Backs Move

‘There are more experienced players here,’ he told the Manchester Evening News.

‘Obviously, Liverpool had many great players as well but the players here have been at the highest level for many years and you can definitely see that on the training pitch.

‘The tempo, the passing, the two-touch movement in training; it’s really surprised me. It’s really sharp, really good to be involved in.’
