Two lacklustre loan spells at both Torino and West Ham have decimated not only his reputation but also his transfer value. He's training like a young guy of 18 years old. I am happy we won and happy to play against my old club.

City play Chelsea in the Community Shield on 5 August before opening their league campaign at Arsenal a week later. We can not forget what we've done but we start again.

Sterling had a fantastic season with City, and saw his potential asking price rise in the World Cup in Russian Federation.
