Manchester City fans were livid with the performance of Raheem Sterling during their Champions League final defeat to Chelsea on Saturday night.
The Citizens took part in European football’s showpiece against the Blues as they looked to win the Champions League for the first time in their history. However, a questionable team selection from Pep Guardiola – he fielded an XI without a defensive midfielder – led to City losing 1-0 after Kai Havertz broke away late in the first half.
Sterling was selected from the start by Guardiola, and he failed to have enough of an impact on the game. The £81m-valued 26-year-old (Transfermarkt) has come in for criticism from the City supporters in recent weeks, and he did little to enamour himself to them with this final club display of the campaign. England fans will hoping for better at the European Championships.
Should City sell Sterling?
The fans were far from happy with what they saw, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the winger.
