Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba believes Raheem Sterling does not get the respect he deserves for his performances for Manchester City.
Sterling has already scored 21 goals in all competitions this season as Pep Guardiola’s side look set to compete for a quadruple.
The winger has fired 15 goals and provided nine assists in the Premier League to lead that haul, with Sterling having emerged as one of the league’s most dynamic attackers.
But Pogba feels Sterling does not get the credit he is due, and the Manchester United midfielder was quick to say that the winger should be counted among the very best.
“I think Raheem Sterling, with all the stats from last year and everything he’s done – nobody talks about it like we should,” Pogba told Sky Sports .
“He has ridiculous stats, he’s scored goals and made a hat-trick not long ago. He’s been top with City.
“What I’ve been seeing is he’s been criticised for houses and what I’ve been hearing things about, but nobody talks about what he’s been doing on the pitch.
“Maybe if he was somebody else, it would be different.”
Sterling accused the media of fueling racism earlier this season after being abused in a match against Chelsea in December.
The Manchester City star’s comments were recently commended by England team-mate Danny Rose, who said Sterling only said what other black players are thinking.
