Manchester City new boy Raheem Sterling has apologised to former club Liverpool for his acrimonious departure from Anfield last week, the Daily Star reports.
The England international became the UK’s most expensive player when he joined City in a drawn out £49m deal last week after news emerged that his relationship with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had broken down completely.
Eventually, Liverpool fans were pleased to finally have the player off their books after he admitted back in April that he wouldn’t sign a new £100,000-per-week deal with the Reds.
This led to him being booed by some sections of the Anfield faithful, and he was even booed by a portion of an Australian crowd that attended City’s 1-0 win over booster side Melbourne City in a friendly this weekend.
And it now seems that the whole affair has left a bitter taste in the 20-year-old’s mouth as he has now admitted he didn’t want to leave the club in the manner that he did.
“I’m a bit disappointed with how it was left,” he said.
“That was the main problem I had with the situation is how I left it with Liverpool.
“I’m good with everyone at Liverpool – with the players and the manager and I wish them well for the new season
“But I’m really disappointed how it did finish off.”
Should have thought about that a bit sooner then, eh, Raheem?
