CLUB CARRIER

Doing amazingly well in the youth ranks, Sterling got proper gametime for the Liverpool senior team in the 2012-13 season. While he gave a good account of his talent, occasional shoddy performances brought him down.

However, it was just a precursor for the better things to come. It was as if he could do no wrong in Liverpool’s magnificent and eventually heartbreaking 2013-14 season. He formed a lethal attacking trident with Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. He scored and created goals and finished the season with 10 goals in all competitions.

However, trouble was brewing related to his contract extension. Sterling was vehement in demanding fee hike. While he was still valuable for Liverpool in the field, off field issues took centre stage. He even lost support of Anfield and was occasionally booed in the later half of the season when Sterling failed to show up for trainings and openly requested for fee hike.

Despite rejecting offers from Manchester City initially, Liverpool eventually had to let go off him to City at an astounding £49 million in 2015. While the move made Sterling most expensive English player, it drew huge criticism from footballing world regarding Sterling’s lack of commitment and club loyalty.

His first season at City was uninspiring and a far cry from his potential and price tag. The highlight of the injury ridden season was the hattrick against Bournemouth early in the season.

Raheem Sterling was at his inconsistent best in 2016-17 season where he was unstoppable at times but eventually his form would fade away. He still fetched 11 goals in all competition
