Raheem Sterling says he was pleased to see Liverpool win the Champions League but insists Manchester City’s priority remains the Premier League.

England international Sterling left Liverpool in acrimonious circumstances in 2015.

The Anfield club have finished behind City in each of the subsequent four seasons but beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid last month to secure their sixth European crown.

“I was really happy for them, happy for some of the players I know to lift the Champions League,” Sterling told the Manchester Evening News.

The 24-year-old, who has flourished under manager Pep Guardiola, added: “The Champions League is massive for us as a club but our most important thing is winning the Premier League.

“For me, what we did last season – every day, week in week out – was exceptional.

“It was a massive stepping stone to have belief in our squad, that belief we’ve been building over these last couple of years.

“Since the manager has come in we’ve got stronger every year. Yes, it’d be nice to win the Champions League but first and foremost we want to win the league. The Premier League is your bread and butter, every weekend, what you train for every day.”

Classic, tired, sports psychology cliche; it’s expected.
Of course he puts it over a head-to-head competition they got knocked out of.
Wouldn’t want to give off how beatable they are.
