Sterling: Man City goals mean nothing without trophies

Raheem Sterling insists his goals for Manchester City will only mean ‘something’ if they result to the club winning trophies.

Raheem Sterling just doesn’t want to score but wants to see his goals amount to something tangible for Man City.

A hat-trick in the Citizen’s 5-0 thumping of Brighton took his tally to 17 league goals for the season.

Far back as months ago, it was already more than likely Liverpool would be crowned Premier League ago.

But Sterling still has his sights on other competitions. City have already won the Carabao Cup and remain in the FA Cup and the Champions League.

The Englishman is happy to score as much goals as possible but ultimately wants them to translate to silverware.

“The most important thing to me is the value of these goals, that they add to the team,”  Sterling said as quoted by Independent.

“At the end of day we’re trying to win the FA Cup final and win the Champions League as well, otherwise these goals don’t really mean anything.”

Sterling added: “I was disappointed last weekend with the loss away at Southampton, we created chances but I didn’t think we finished them.”

“I think the problem we’ve had this season is we’ve been creating a lot of chances, last season and the season before we finished them.”

“But this season we haven’t had that bit of luck. But we’re growing, we’re doing things right and that’s what we need to do.”

In other competitions, up next for Sterling and City is an FA Cup semi-final clash against Arsenal next weekend.
