Three reasons why Liverpool star Raheem Sterling should join Man City
Three reasons why want-away Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling should join Manchester City
Champions League football
A player like Raheem Sterling will not want to worry about playing in the Europa League this coming season. He would much rather prepare himself with the prospect of playing against the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus or Paris Saint-Germain. Being stuck at a club such as Liverpool in the Europa League with ambitious hopes of Champions League football is not something a player of his calibre wants. The likes of Gareth Bale left their previous clubs in the hope of greater European success elsewhere, so why should Sterling not do the same?
Work with a better coach
It is fair to say that Manuel Pellegrini’s coaching attributes outweigh that of Brendan Rodgers. Sterling may have benefitted from the Liverpool manager’s advice and guidance in the past but now is the perfect time to learn from a coach that guides his club to a top-four finishes in the league and deals with the demands of high expectations every week of every season effectively. Rodgers, meanwhile, has led the Reds from second to sixth in the league within a season which appears to show he can’t deal with high expectations. The relationship between Sterling and Rodgers has also reported to have broken down to a point where they cannot work together. Seems the perfect chance to find a new manager to work with rather than argue with.
Who would you rather play alongside: Simon Mignolet, Martin Skrtel, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge or Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Sergio Aguero? There is no question that City’s squad is greater than Liverpool’s which would also provide a great opportunity for Sterling to improve as a player. The 20-year-old is already showing his potential as one of the best players at his current but moving to a club where he is surrounded by some of football’s biggest international stars will help the winger improve greatly and also benefit his club and country. The experience of playing with great players is just as important as playing against great players.
