Sterling left Anfield for Manchester City in a £49m deal in 2015 as he became the most-expensive English player ever.

That year, the England international turned down a huge wage offer from Liverpool to move to the Etihad and he faced huge criticism from the Reds after completing the move.

Sterling's decision has ultimately been justified though after playing a pivotal role in City's back-to-back Premier League title wins.

Speaking to GQ magazine, the City forward revealed his decision to quit Liverpool was on the basis of winning the Premier League.

"When I got into Liverpool I said if I haven’t won the Premier League by the time I'm 21 I need to look at my options and see what I'm doing there," the 24-year-old said.

"I put that into place from a young age. And I came to City and won my first Premier League.

"It's just good to know what I've set out to do - what we've set out as a team to do - is going as planned."

Sterling was hugely criticized earlier when he joined Manchester City with many fans believing he made the move with the aim of acquiring more improved wages.

He added: "There was a point when I left Liverpool I actually thought, Why should this little black kid have this money?"

"That's at one point how I felt, the stories that were coming out...Why should he?".
