Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has disclosed that he has not regretted in his move away from Liverpool and believes he made the right choice by joining the Manuel Pellegrini’s side at the Etihad.
The England youngster was the focal point of debates during his mouth watering £49 million move from Anfield to the Etihad in the summer transfer window as Liverpool were reluctant to let him to leave. Amidst much of the fan’s fury, the 20-year old forced his way out of the club.
Sterling, 20, was speaking at a press conference ahead of England’s friendly clash with Spain on Friday, the youngster said he is unperturbed pertinent to his move to Manchester City and thinks his best is yet to come as his career development is far advanced.
“I’m not trying to say I proved anyone wrong, It’s just that I thought at the time it was right for me and my heart was saying that is what I should do and that is what I have done and I have no regrets.”
“They 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.”
“It has been a good start to the season and obviously we are still top of the English Premier League and that is always a good feeling, but my form can be better. I think everyone would say that as well, that their form can always be better”, England’s most expensive player added.
Sterling started his career at Queens Park Rangers in 2003 before making a move to Liverpool youth side in 2010 and finally graduated to the Senior side in 2012.
He was very instrumental in the then Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers’ squad forming a formidable partnership with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge in the 2013-14 season, nearly gave them a first win of the Premier league tittle since the Premier League era.
Liverpool finished second to Manchester City with 84 points and out of 101 goals recorded by the Club, their three attackers (Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling) scored 61 goals in the 2013-14 football season.
Sterling will be the man to watch after the international break when Man City will host Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 21 November 2015.
