Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has revealed he was happy for his former club Liverpool to win the Champions League.
Sterling left the Reds in 2015 joining the Citizens where he went on to win five major trophies, including a back-to-back Premier League under head coach Pep Guardiola. Last season Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0 to lift the Champions League with Sterling admitting he was glad for the former side adding the PL will always remain the priority for City.
"I was really happy for them, happy for some of the players I know to lift the Champions League," he said.
“The Champions League is massive for us as a club but our most important thing is winning the Premier League. That's our main objective going into this season. Yes, it'd be nice to win the Champions League but first and foremost we want to win the league. The Premier League is your bread and butter, every weekend, what you train for every day.
"The Champions League is the nicer looking one, the most prestigious as people say, but every weekend you put in a shift, you're going to tough places. You're off to Crystal Palace, Burnley. It's tough. You put so much time into it."
The two clubs will face each other in the Community Shield, the curtain-raiser to the Premier League on August 4th.
