Liverpool fans react as Raheem Sterling reveals reason behind Anfield departure

One of the most bitter transfer sagas of recent years, Raheem Sterling’s protracted move to Manchester City back in the summer of 2015 certainly didn’t go down well on the red half of Merseyside.

The England international left Anfield in a £49m deal and the nature of his departure didn’t particularly endear him to the Reds faithful.

Now, in an interview with GQ magazine, Sterling has revealed that the reason behind leaving Liverpool was his failure to win the Premier League with them by the time he was 21.

The comments saw Reds fans take to Twitter, and many were understandably fuming over their former charge’s apparent lack of respect for the club.

Many seemed frustrated by Sterling’s words and questioned the winger’s arrogance at expecting to win the Premier League at such a young age.

Some however were keen to move on from the now Manchester City star and pointed out that Liverpool had won the Champions League under Jurgen Klopp last season, and wondered which side had made the real progression.
