Raheem Sterling on Manchester City departure: 'I was angry, pissed off'

In an interview, Raheem Sterling looked back on his surprise transfer from Manchester City to Chelsea. The winger left the English champions in the summer, a year before his contract expired, to join the Blues for a fee of €56m.

“At the time I was angry, mad, all that,” he said Sky Sports about the time when his decision matured to leave City due to the short playing times under coach Pep Guardiola. “It was a shame it ended like this because I had a great time there,” added Sterling.

He gave an insight into his emotional world and explained why he left the Cityzens. “Everyone wants to feel needed – that’s the same in football. If you give everything, for example not being there for your children’s birthdays and then you’re treated in a certain way, then that’s just disappointing,” revealed Sterling.

The 27-year-old hopes to have improved his personal World Cup chances with his move. So far he has made 77 appearances for England, scoring 19 goals.
