Raheem Sterling is glad Manchester City will have another creative type in the building. Jack Grealish has joined and Sterling spoke highly about him and about more.

Let’s see what he had to say-

“Whenever you make a signing, it is always a good thing for the club. It shows they want more as a club and it deserves more,”

“We have signed a great player and someone that wants to prove himself at the highest level. I don’t think there is any better club for him to try and do that.

“I met him at Villa, but during the international period it was the first time I was really around him for a long period of time.

“He is a player that always wants the ball, he gets in good pockets of space and he is creative.

“It adds another creative player to this team which I am really excited about so hopefully he can add a few more goals to my tally.

“When you add good players to your team it is always a good thing. He is a player I believe can truly have a great career here.”

“We have done it before, we have won it two years on the bounce. It is something that we are capable of.

“I think it comes from the club, the manager and the mindset he has installed. That winning mentality, once you get a taste of it, you want it even more.

“If you want to keep winning, you don’t want to see someone else take the Premier League trophy. We have enjoyed [being champions], but it is finished, it is done.

“The last season is over and done with, so we are not going to get the trophy again this year by looking back at last season.”

“It is a difficult first game, but we are going to play them at some point in the season anyway, so why not the first game,” he pointed out.

“[Nuno] did a great job at Wolves and it is a good job for him to go in there. He is a manager that brings a structure and winning mentality into the club.

“He did incredible things with them. Now he has gone to Tottenham with some unbelievable players, and I am sure he will have them playing good football.”

Interesting comments from Razza. He will be key to this season as City look to win as many titles as possible.

Let’s hope he stays on target.
