Raheem Sterling refuses to rule out Anfield return: “I love Liverpool”
The England international made his breakthrough with the Reds while in his teens, but left on bad terms in 2015.
His £49 million switch to the Etihad ended a bitter saga that began with Sterling’s refusal to sign a new contract, which drew criticism from then-Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and former club greats like Jamie Carragher.
And speaking in a live Q&A hosted on the Instagram account of his representatives Colossal Sports Management, Sterling was asked directly if he would ever go back to Liverpool.
“To be honest with you, I love Liverpool,” said the 25-year-old.
"Don't get it twisted, they are always in my heart, do you know what I mean?
"It's a team that (has) done a lot for me growing up."
Sterling scored 20 goals in 39 appearances this season before football across Europe ground to a halt because of the coronavirus.
In total, the winger has made 230 appearances for the Citizens in almost five years at the club, netting 89 goals.
