Man City’s Raheem Sterling on wanting to play abroad in the future

Man City star

Raheem Sterling made the switch to Manchester City in July of 2015, moving from Liverpool.

During his four-year stint in Manchester, Sterling has gone on to cement himself as one of the top talents in English football.

Sterling has been a role model both on and off the pitch. The England international would pay for 550 kids to travel to Man City’s FA Cup semi-final this past season.

The 24-year-old has also made 191 appearances for the Citizens, in which he has scored 69 and assisted 65.

Sterling has also helped to guide City to two league titles, one FA Cup and three League Cups.

Sterling on moving abroad

Sterling was a key member of Man City’s side this past season, as they became the first male English side to win the domestic treble.

Pep Guardiola’s men are now set to defend all three of their titles, kicking off their PL campaign vs West Ham on August 10th.

Ahead of the new season, Sterling has been speaking about his future.

Sterling stated that he is in Manchester for the long haul. But he also admitted that it has been his dream to go and play abroad:

“Looking at it now it’s like, Manchester, I love it. I love it here. This is one of the best clubs in the world and I’m here for the long haul.

“But you just don’t know what happens in the future. I’m still young and, like I say, I am loving every minute.

“Ever since I was a kid, 100 per cent it’s always been a dream of mine to play abroad somewhere. It would be nice one day to finish training and go home and sit in your garden and eat some dinner.” As quoted by the Independent.

However, Sterling also mentioned how much he struggles to understand his German teammates, so maybe we won’t be seeing him in the Bundesliga:

“I hear Leroy (Sane) and Ilkay (Gundogan) talking and sometimes I think they’re having me on. I’m like, ‘You lot are not speaking to each other. That’s not a language I could do’.”
