Bio:

Skilful, speedy and strong, Raheem Sterling is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in English football.

The 20-year-old joined City in July 2015 from Liverpool for a Club record fee, becoming the most expensive English player of all time.

Inspired to become a footballer because of the family home’s proximity to Wembley Stadium, the attacking midfielder began his career at Queens Park Rangers.

Born in Jamaica, he had moved to London at the age of seven and spent seven years at Loftus Road. During his time with the Hoops, he made his international debut at under-16 level with England.

In 2010, he made the move to Merseyside where he made a name for himself as one of the country’s rising stars.

A string of impressive displays earned him the Golden Boy award in 2014, as a panel of sports journalists dubbed him the best player under the age of 21 playing in Europe.

While at Anfield, Sterling also became the youngest Liverpool player to ever receive an international cap. He made his debut for the Reds as a substitute against Wigan in March 2012 at the age of 17.

His first senior start came against City the following August and he impressed enough to retain his place ahead of more experienced players.

A key member of the side that pushed the Blues to the wire in the 2013/14 title race, Sterling scored against Manuel Pellegrini’s side in what had seemed a significant 3-2 win.

Since then, he has continued to develop, becoming a star for both club and country. Having joined City, he hopes to help the club challenge for more silverware.
