EPL: Raheem Sterling disclose being massive Manchester United fan
The England forward, who stars for City these days, said when he was younger, he was firmly a Red.
The 24-year-old Sterling enjoyed another brilliant season for Pep Guardiola’s side scoring 17 goals and adding 10 assists in 34 Premier League games.
But despite playing for City, as well as Liverpool before them, Sterling admitted he grew up a huge supporter of United.
Sterling said he was at the 2007 FA Cup final, which saw Chelsea defeat United at Wembley.
“I was at the final in 2007,” he told the Mirror.
“I shouldn’t really say this — not now, definitely not now! — but when I was young, I was a massive United fan.
“I had an old United kit, from when they won the last FA Cup.”
