The ‘mentally indestructible’ Man City player on course to become all-time Premier League great


Raheem Sterling can become one of the all-time Premier League greats if he continues his incredible form at Manchester City.

That is the view of former Chelsea and Liverpool winger Joe Cole, who has predicted a bright future for the 24-year-old.

Sterling scored twice against Chelsea at the weekend in City’s 6-0 win, taking his record for this season to 14 goals and 15 assists in 33 appearances.

Overall for City, Sterling has scored or assisted 120 goals in 173 appearances since making the £50m move from Liverpool in 2015.

And Cole believes Sterling deserves credit for becoming a better player under Pep Guardiola.

Cole said: “I thought he was a massive talent. I think he’s turned himself into a top, top player and a lot of credit has to go to Pep Guardiola and people like that.

 

“But the lad takes on lessons and you look at the positions he takes up and the amount of goals he scores now. And at the age he’s at there’s still extra levels to go.

“We could be talking in five years time as Raheem Sterling being one of the top Premier League players of all time if he keeps on winning trophies, keeps on scoring goals.”

Cole also praised Sterling’s mentality for living up to his hefty price tag in a City shirt.

He continued: “The great thing about him is, he’s had a move from Liverpool to Manchester. There’s been a lot of weight on his shoulders.

“He’s taken that on and he looks almost mentally indestructible at the moment.

“Just to get into that team is a thing in itself but he’s one of the top players in that team. And that is some going, we should be lucky and proud that he’s an English player and to have him in our national team.

“He’s done so well and I’m pleased for him.”

Sterling responded to the comments by tweeting: “means a lot thx Joe” and when another user claimed Cole’s comments were accurate, the City man had a defiant message of his own.

He said: “I’m far from there yet it takes time & so much work.. worth a try tho” followed by a winking emoji.
