Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling feels his change of focus has helped him reach his best form this campaign.
The England international has made headlines for his off-field behaviour in the past and was criticised for underwhelming performances on more than one occasion last season.
But Sterling has impressed in 2016-17 and he believes his new attitude has been key to his resurgence.
“The environment is really good and I am keeping myself to myself, keeping away from certain stuff I was doing last year,” Sterling told Sky Sports.
“It is doing me the world of good, so that is what I need to keep doing. I am enjoying my football.”
The 21-year-old has been one of City’s star men this term, but he aims to be more consistent in order to keep helping the team.
“I need to be a player who helps the team on a regular basis, not just once every few months,” he added.
“That is what I am trying to do, it will take time but I will get there.”
