At a news conference in New York, Manchester City star Raheem Sterling reveals he will love to play in the United State at some stage of his football career.
Sterling, who currently has four years left on his contract at the Etihad says he was surprised by the level of enthusiasm for football in the State and expected the sport to continue to grow.
“English football has grown massively over here. It wasn’t like that in the past, and it’ll continue to get bigger,” he said. ““I was surprised even just popping out to the shops and being recognised by one or two people. I didn’t expect that over here.“
Sterling added that their weather is more better than theirs and hopes to relocate his family to the State in the future.
“This is a country I would, one day, love to be able to come to. Your weather is a lot better than ours. Hopefully one day I can have my family over here,” the England international said.
“There’s always games on our television at the training ground. For sure, it (MLS) is growing in the UK, and people are really taking it in and want to come over. Hopefully I will have a career here as well.“
Meanwhile, the MLS’ club New York City FC is owned by the City Football Group which runs Man City and five other clubs around the world.
And Sterling is still enjoying their epic 2018/19 season as they do the impossible by winning treble.
