Sterling accepted that he is grateful for the club’s role in making him who he is today. He commented about the role Liverpool played as he was growing up.
The makings of a star
The City star left Liverpool in 2015 in a deal worth £49million. The player and his agent’s antics did not go down well with the Reds faithful. They saw the player’s actions as a sign of him jumping ship.
Signed in 2010 from Queens Park Rangers, Sterling would make his debut for the first-team in 2012. He would go on to play a key role in Liverpool’s unlikely title charge in 2013-14.
He was called upon to play a prominent role the next season following Luis Suarez’s sale and Daniel Sturridge’s injury problems. It turned out to be his last at Anfield as he moved to City the next summer in acrimonious circumstances.
