Sterling opens up on reasons and aftermath of Liverpool exit

Raheem Sterling was a Kop favourite, making his senior debut with the Reds at the age of 17 and then playing well here for a few seasons as his game developed under Brendan Rodgers.

The winger left the Reds for Manchester City in a big-money move back in 2015. Asked to discuss the reasons behind that move and the consequences later on, he told Sky Sports: "Sometimes you've got to know what you want.

"Your career is only short, you don't really know what's going to happen. At times, we make decisions and they might not be the right ones. Sometimes, it turns out for the better.

"The only thing I will say is the way it [my exit from Liverpool] went about was the thing I am more disappointed about. But other than that, it's been so far, so good.

"I said at the time, I felt like my ambitions and Liverpool's ambitions at the time weren't really aligned. The way it went about is the only disappointment I have from it."

Liverpool fans were of course not very happy to see our starboy move away to a direct rival. However, it has been over six years since that transfer and the Reds have become a much better club since then.

The Sterling chapter at Anfield is officially closed.
