Sterling refuses to rule out Liverpool return

In an online Q&A with fans, Raheem Sterling refused to rule out the possibility of returning to Liverpool at some point in the future.

Sterling’s professional career started at Liverpool in 2012, when he was promoted from their U-23 setup to the first team. He arrived to Merseyside two years earlier, straight from the U-18s at Queens Park Rangers. He went on to make a total of 129 appearances for the Reds, scoring 23 goals and laying on 25 assists.

In the summer of 2015, he refused an offer of a lucrative new contract in order to force a move to Manchester City where he has won the league twice so far, and the way it happened left a sour taste for the Anfield faithful. Since then, the winger has so far failed to score a single goal against Liverpool, and where he was once a very popular youngster, now his every touch of the ball is greeted with loud booing.

Nonetheless, when asked about the prospect of returning, he said that Liverpool are a club that has done a lot for his career and he wouldn’t rule it out. On the other hand, Liverpool fans don’t seem very keen on seeing him in a Red shirt again.
