Sterling made an honest admission about his form in Man City amid the ongoing scandal during the regular minutes at Guardiola, losing this season to him personally was very strange.
Raheem Sterling was important in City’s success
Raheem has played a vital role in City’s domestic success over the past five years, helping them win back titles in 2017-18 and 2018-19, while his club goals score to 113 across all competitions. However, the 26-year-old saw his role shorten that timeline slightly, and Pep was forced to rotate his squad more often than usual due to the congested attachment schedule caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
This is the perfect time of the season
Raheem Sterling has struggled for consistency throughout the campaign as he was drafted in and out of XI City’s starting, and opened on his disappointment ahead of their Champions League quarter-final return match against Dortmund’s Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday. The England player, during a meeting with Rio Ferdinand, said that this season has been very strange for him personally, but nevertheless he still enjoys his football and gives everything to his team. If he doesn’t score or does something to help the team, he is not happy to leave the field. He added that he is happy to have won, but at the same time he thinks that this is what helps him achieve these goals, it is movable and this is the perfect time of the season now.
Raheem has appeared in 41 games for Pep Guardiola so far in 2020-21, contributing 13 goals and 11 assists. However, the pacey winger has scored only nine times in the Premier League, 11 fewer goals than he managed last season, with only six games left to play. Raheem remained on the bench for City’s 2-1 home win against Dortmund last week, and it is unclear if he will play at Westfalenstadion after playing another void in Leeds’ 2-1 defeat in the Premier League on Saturday.
