Raheem Sterling has said that winning trophies matter more for him rather than scoring goals.
The Englishman notched up a hat-trick in Manchester City’s last match against Watford to win the contest by 3-1.
Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has said that winning trophies are more important than the number of goals he has scored for his side. The English ace dished out a top-notch performance against Watford in the last match and scored a hat-trick, his first of the season, to see the Citizens get over the line comfortably and consolidate their place at the top of the Premier League with a four points lead.
Speaking to the media after the match, Sterling insisted that the Citizens are hungry for silverware this term. He said, “It’s going alright for me and the team. We’ve got one trophy already and the most important thing is not how many goals I am scoring, it’s how many trophies we lift.”
Sterling added, “You know, hopefully we can continue with this amazing mentality and see how far it gets us. (We) don’t get excited about anything. We know how difficult teams can be, we know how difficult these competitions are, we’re playing against top teams, top players and anything can happen. We’ve got to keep humble, keep fighting game by game.”
