Some Manchester City fans are far from happy with comments from Raheem Sterling on his struggles at the Etihad Stadium.
The 26-year-old is currently away on international duty with England at Euro 2020 and he has been one of the players of the tournament. As the Three Lions have progressed to the semi-finals, the winger has scored three goals and provided one assist (uefa.com) as he has kept the trust of manager Gareth Southgate.
His form at City was not fantastic last term – he received criticism from some supporters and, although he scored 14 goals and provided 12 assists (Transfermarkt), he failed to match his showings from previous seasons.
Speaking to ITV prior to England’s quarter-final clash with Ukraine last night, the £81m-valued Sterling (Transfermarkt) said that a lot of people do not understand what goes on behind closed doors when discussing City.
He remarked: “I’ve been performing for Man City for the last three/four seasons, putting in great numbers, winning loads of trophies. A lot of people don’t understand what goes on behind closed doors, there’s a lot more to football than just a matchday.”
Should City sell Sterling?
The comments were shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and they attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. These took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on what Sterling had to say.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the comments from Sterling
“Time to sell.”
“You’re making things worse -_-“
“Cheers son’s crying”
“How dare he says that!!Sell him!!!”
“Stop missing easy chances and a lot of people will understand”
