Raheem Sterling knows he can be better. He also knows this has been a weird season for players and fans alike. Speaking to BT Sport, had a lot to say from the team’s mentality heading in to UCL clash and much more.

Let’s dive in-

“This season for me personally has been a very weird one. But I’m still enjoying my football and giving my all to Man City. Don’t get me wrong, if I don’t score or help the team, I’m not happy coming off the field, of course I’m happy that we’ve won...”

“But I think that helps me to get these goals, being that driven. It’s the perfect time of the season now. You’ve just got to wait for your opportunity to make your mark...”

“Being a complete pro at home; eating, recovery. Game after game you’re just thinking of games, looking at goalscorers, looking at whose leading - just being obsessed with football. That’s been a massive bonus for me...”

: “If you come into our changing room, you wouldn’t even notice that there’s a game going on, how drilled the guys are. In the last couple of years, we’ve been at this stage and we know we should’ve won...”

“It’s more about overcoming this stage, and we’ll be flying. The manager just tries to stress to play our football. I feel like if we just do that without really overthinking or doing too much, we’ll win the #UCL second-leg

“For me personally, I felt like that was a game that should’ve been won like 3-0. We had the chances to finish that game off. Now going away is definitely going to be a difficult one...”

“On a day-to-day basis, that game is done, we’ve forgotten about that now. That’s what’s so good about this squad; once one game is done, you’re on to the next...”

The match Wednesday is massive and Raheem and the team know that. Hopefully they perform when the lights come on.
