Zidane on Man City’s Raheem Sterling

Ahead of the Levante tie, Zinedine Zidane has spoken to the media about Raheem Sterling.

The Manchester City standout recently did an interview with Spanish outlet AS, in which Sterling was asked about his interest in joining Real Madrid.

He had this to say:

“How do I answer that one? Is the camera live or is it just taking pictures?

“No one knows what the future will hold. I am a player and I am always open to challenges but right now my challenge is at Manchester City. In the future, hopefully, who knows…”

And in the wake of that interview, Zidane was asked about Real’s potential interest in Sterling. The Frenchman, though, refused to be drawn on that speculation:

“I can’t talk about a player who isn’t mine. He’s a very good player, no doubt about that.”
