Raheem Sterling has spoken out about his relationship with Liverpool and admitted he loves the club and would not rule out a move back to Anfield if the offer came about.
In an online Q&A session with fans, Sterling said: “Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you I love Liverpool.
“Don’t get it twisted, they are always in my heart. It’s a team that done a lot for me growing up so…” (via The Mirror).
The Jamaican-born forward left the club in 2015 for a fee of £57.3.million (Transfermarkt) and left an extremely sour taste in Reds fans’ mouths. Sterling well and truly burned his bridges with the Kopites, and as a result, the winger is subject of a lot of boos whenever Liverpool take on Manchester City. Even during a friendly against Melbourne City, Sterling was booed as he stood in his Manchester City gear.
A lot of fans are responding to the 25-year-old’s comments about Liverpool, with the majority furious that he would say such a thing. One supporter has called him a ‘Judas’ whilst another has said the £144million-rated (Transfermarkt) man ‘can pay for a stadium tour’ if he wants to come back to Anfield.
