Raheem Sterling Refuses To Rule Out Sensational Return To Liverpool
Raheem Sterling has revealed that he still has a lot of love for former side Liverpool and refused to rule out a return in the future.
Sterling burst onto the scene as a teenager at Liverpool before departing for Manchester City in 2015.
The 25-year-old didn't leave Anfield on the best of terms but he revealed in a Instagram Q&A he has no hard feelings.
"Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you I love Liverpool," he said on Instagram per The Mirror.
"Don't get it twisted, they are always in my heart. It's a team that done a lot for me growing up so..."
Fans have reacted to the news on social media and it's safe to say the wounds of Sterling's transfer has yet to heal.
One user wrote: "Yes, he can pay for a stadium tour."
A second bluntly stated: "He doesn't need to rule it out, we ruled it out for him."
While a third added: "No thank you. City possibly banned from Europe and squad needs an overhaul, and suddenly Mr Sterling still loves liverpool. He has no loyalty, no respect and definitely no class."
The England international receives a hostile reception whenever he returns to Merseyside and he has never scored a goal against his former club.
He has admitted he regrets how his £49 million transfer went down in 2015 as he's gone on to become one of Manchester City's most influential players under Pep Guardiola.
Sterling begun this season in red hot form but saw the goals dry up over the festive period.
He didn't manage to register a goal in 2020 before the season was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Elsewhere in the Q&A, the winger also picked his dream midfield between Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Paul Scholes or Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Xabi Alonso.
To the surprise of many, Sterling picked the English midfielders over the Spanish World Cup winning trio.
"Don't get me wrong, Iniesta, Xavi and Alonso are unbelievable players and they have won everything but, growing up watching Gerrard, Lampard and Scholes...frightening."
It's certainly a controversial opinion.
