Sterling not satisfied with the lack of Manchester City playing time


Raheem Sterling revealed that he was not happy with his lack of playing time at Manchester City last season in Premier League (PL). He has been linked with a transfer from the Premier League championships after finding himself on the bench on several occasions towards the back-end of the 2020-21 campaign, including Champions League quarter-final and semi-final ties.

Sterling scored the winning goal against Croatia for England in their opening two games of the EURO 2020 last week. He said, “It is just happiness, just being happy, enjoying my football and that is what I am doing being here with the national team. If you’re not playing, you are not happy. That’s me, that’s been me since I was a kid, if I’m playing football I am happy, if I’m not I’m not happy.”

He further says, “I do feel there’s a bit of an overreaction on the whole in terms of I don’t know if it’s… I just feel there’s more of a panic on the outside than inside the building. I’m not saying on the outside its negativity but we don’t want any negativity creeping in and performance levels dropping, and that’s all that it will do.” He also added, “I feel the fans have an expectation of us with the players we have in the squad and that is rightly so.”
