Raheem Sterling TAUNTS Liverpool supporters by insisting decision to join Manchester City was “easy”

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has once again risked the wrath of Liverpool supporters by insisting he was not a difficult decision to leave the Merseyside outfit, Mirror Sport reports.

The 20-year-old completed his move to the Etihad Stadium side last month in a deal that will reportedly rise to £49million as he became the most expensive English player ever.

His transfer did upset a large majority of Reds fans, who weren’t too pleased with the manner in which Sterling conducted himself during his final days at the club after it was reported that he failed to show up for training twice and asked to be omitted from the squad for the pre-season tour.

Despite the criticism, Sterling has showed glimpses of his quality for City as he has already scored three times since his arrival and he feels justified with his choice to leave Anfield:

“The decision was easy when I first knew about City’s interest,” the England international revealed to supporters at a club launch ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

“With the players they’ve got here, it’s just a really attractive place to be. I’m happy I made that decision.”

“It’s been a good pre-season so far. Obviously some of the results haven’t gone our way but there are some great players here,” Sterling added.
