Dietmar Hamann has slammed Raheem Sterling’s agent after he suggested the England star would have stayed at Liverpool if Jurgen Klopp had been in charge.

The 20-year-old forward completed a £49m move to Manchester City in the summer transfer window after he reportedly fell out with Brendan Rodgers.

Sterling scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 victory over Bournemouth at The Etihad on Saturday afternoon, whilst Klopp oversaw a goalless draw in his first game in charge of Liverpool.

And Sterling’s agent Aidy Ward revealed the England international would have relished the chance to work under the 48-year-old German.

“The new Liverpool manager probably would have been a great fit for Raheem – passionate, disciplined in the right way, new ideas, not afraid of trying new things,” Ward is quoted as saying by Daily Mail. “He’ll do great at Liverpool.

“Would Raheem under Klopp have been a good scenario? Yes, 100 per cent, definitely, mainly because of the person Klopp is – the passion, the drive, the emotion, wanting to achieve.

“Raheem has all of this, but you won’t always see it outwardly. Working with Klopp – that could have been great. He’s going to get the best out of those players. It could have been a dream come true.”

But former Liverpool midfielder Hamann criticised Ward for his latest comments on Tuesday afternoon.

Sterling broke into the Liverpool first-term under Klopp’s predecessor Rodgers after the Northern Irishman took charge in 2012.
