Raheem Sterling admits that he will be open to leaving Manchester City to have regular playing time elsewhere.

The England international’s opportunities at City have been limited under Pep Guardiola since the second half of last season, despite a starring role in England’s run to the European Championship final this summer.

And speaking in the FT Business of Sport US Summit, Sterling admitted:

“If there was an opportunity to go somewhere else, I’d be open to it at this moment in time.


“As I said, football is the most important thing to me – challenges that I have set myself from a young age and dreams as well, to play abroad.


“As an English player all I know is the Premier League and I have always had something down (in me) that maybe one day I would love to play abroad to see how I would come up against that challenge.


“I’m not a person that’s going to complain. I’ve not tried to make it a bigger deal than it actually is.


“I get on with my work, do what I need to do. And I’m just raring to go – playing football matches regularly, score goals regularly.


“From being a young child, football has been the most important thing in my life, my most happiest I should say.


“If I want my happiness at a certain level I need to be playing football. I need to be scoring goals and enjoying myself.”

This season Sterling played 10 games for the reigning Premier League champions, scored and assisted once.
