Sterling: Quitting Liverpool for Manchester City was the right decision.

Former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling insists his decision to leave Anfield for the Etihad was the right one, adding playing with better players will improve his game. Manchester City sealed the services of the England international for £49m in the summer and he has had a bright start with the Citizens, making the 20-year-old believe he'll have a better career at City. "I did what I thought was right at the time for me and my heart was saying that is what I should do, the England attacker said, as the Daily Mirror quoted. "It's what I have done and I have no regrets. "They are both two big football clubs and I am just happy to be where I am and I am happy with my development at this moment in time. I want to continue my development and win trophies. "Part of it was my development, trying to get myself better as a player, definitely help my club and definitely help my country in big tournaments. "I go into training every day and see the players of that calibre that I am work with - like Vinny (Kompany), Sergio (Aguero), David (Silva), Joe (Hart).

"There is only one thing you can do and that is improve with players like that, who have been around for many years and achieving stuff. "I'm happy to be top of the league and I've scored in some important games. We've got a good bunch of lads there who've helped me settle in really well. "I am just happy to be in a squad like that and hopefully I can continue my development and win trophies in the future with the football club."
