The Englishman moved to the Etihad Stadium in July 2015 in a controversial £50million deal. The move came after Sterling pushed for a transfer with Liverpool nowhere near fighting for honours whilst City were competing and winning Premier League titles. As a result, Sterling isn’t fondly remembered on Merseyside and is still jeered to this day whenever he returns to Anfield. However, with two Premier League titles under his belt since the arrival of Pep Guardiola, Neville believes Sterling has justified his transfer and praised his considerable improvement in front of goal after he netted the winner against Arsenal on Saturday. That goal was Sterling’s 35th since August 2019 and no other Premier League players has scored as many, with Harry Kane (32) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (31) his closest competitors. “It’s incredible,” Neville said during co-commentary. “You think when he was at Liverpool, it wasn’t a foregone conclusion he was going to come to City and Liverpool fans would say, ‘I’m not sure he’ll go on to be world-class or do what he’s done’. “Under the instruction and guidance of Pep Guardiola, he has turned into a fantastic player. He was very erratic in his finishing and his crossing before he came to City. “He was a one in four, one in five, now he’s got that ratio down. He’s got that down now to the point where his numbers are absolutely wonderful.”
