Raheem Sterling Showed A Touch Of Class In Exchange With Jordan Henderson Following Man City Vs Liverpool
Liverpool were confirmed champions last week and took to the pitch at the Etihad while receiving a guard of honour from City players.
Pep Guardiola's men ran out comfortable winners in the end but Sterling, who scored his side's second, wanted a chat with Henderson at full-time.
Henry Winter of The Times documented exactly what Sterling did when he met with the Liverpool captain.
"Raheem Sterling has just walked 70 yards to seek out Jordan Henderson, embrace him and congratulate him. (Players doing post-match interviews different ends of pitch. Sterling walking back to dressing-room but spotted Henderson waiting for his interview, and headed over)."
Sterling played with Henderson at Liverpool before swapping Merseyside for Manchester in 2015 and the duo also play in the England national team together.
Despite the 25-year-old showing admiration for his former club, he still received abuse on social media following the game.

One man who wasn't in a good mood after last night's game was Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
The German coach spoke to Sky Sports following the defeat and his prickly tone with Geoff Shreeves was noticeable.
He was asked about his side missing easy chances in the first-half to which he responded: "You ask me?
"Why are you asking me if we had decent chances?
. @GeoffShreeves :speaking_head: "At 0-0 did you have good chances?"
Jurgen Klopp :speaking_head: "You ask me? why are you asking me? you watched the game completely calm why are you asking me?" pic.twitter.com/zGudulNeqN

"We had moments but you watched the game completely calm why are you asking me if we had decent chances? It makes no sense, this question.
"We had decent chances, ask me about them.
"So we had situations, Sadio Mane in the box, but we didn't use them. That's true."
