Rogers: the transfer of Sterling from Liverpool in the “city” was not a question of money

Former head coach of “Liverpool” Brendan Rogers, now head of Leicester, expressed the view that the transition Raheem Sterling to Manchester city was not a question of money.

“For Sterling transfer from Liverpool to Manchester city was never a question of money. If it was about money, he could stay at Liverpool. He wanted to be the best and continue their development among high-profile players. He moved there, and developed to become a winner that is clear now in his game.

What I liked in the Rahim, is the fact that, being still a young player, he knew what he wants to achieve. I look at the team of Josep Guardiola and feel the difference with sterling and without. That’s fine for a young English player,” said Rogers in an interview with the Liverpool Echo.

Sterling joined the city in 2015, over € 53 million, which at the time was a record transfer amount for a British player. 25-year-old English striker has made 230 appearances for the bulls, scoring 89 goals and giving 72 assists. His transfer fee, according to Transfermarkt.de is € 150 million.
