England international Raheem Sterling wants to continue to be one of Manchester City’s best footballers for the new season.

Manchester City footballer Raheem Sterling wishes he could develop into a player that would always be picked for the starting eleven.

“The biggest difference is that every season, the competition gets tougher, the level gets raised and that’s one of the best things here – that it’s always a high tempo,” he told Goal.

“You’re always learning and competing on all fronts with other players for your position.”

The England international added: “The manager sets a high standard and it’s down to us as players to match that and try and put out our best.”

“Hopefully the manager will put me on the pitch! I’ll try to get some minutes.”

“It’s an important time for us – we have to get ready and get fit for the new season,” he said.

“That’s the most important thing – to try to get my fitness up and hopefully, I’ll score some goals.”
