Raheem Sterling has admitted that he will always have a special place in his heart for Liverpool.

Raheem Sterling started his senior career with Liverpool. He made 129 appearances for the club in all competitions and scored 23 goals.

The England international was unable to get his hands on silverware during his three-year stay at Anfield and moved to Manchester City in 2015 in search for the same.

Sterling has gone on to win seven trophies since then including two successive Premier League titles.

But he is still open to a return to Liverpool. The forward recently took to Instagram and confessed the undying love for his former club.

“Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you I love Liverpool,” Sterling said.

“Don’t get it twisted, they are always in my heart. It’s a team that did a lot for me growing up. So…”

The trio of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, and Xabi Alonso was one of the most successful and celebrated midfield partnerships of all time. But when asked to make a pick, Sterling favored the English trio of Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, and Paul Scoles.

‘I’m sorry but I’ve got to go with Lamps, Gerrard and Scholes,” he said.

‘Don’t get me wrong, Iniesta, Xavi, and Alonso are unbelievable players and they have won everything but, growing up watching Gerrard, Lampard and Scholes…frightening.’
