3 things Liverpool defender said about Raheem Sterling

At a time when players are on international duties for their various countries, it is an opportunity for club opponents to reunite with compatriots.

England beat Hungary 4-0 in a Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier and that game brought together Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold and Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling.

Though they are opponents at club level, it is a different feeling when they wear the England national team Jersey.

As long as the Liverpool defender is concerned, Sterling means a lot to him and the English team as a whole due to his spectacular performance for the Three Lions.

After scoring three goals at the European championships and the first goal in their 4-0 win over Hungary, here are three major things Arnold said about compatriot Raheem Sterling.

1. Role Model: Arnold sees Sterlingas a role model in the team. Not just to him but to many others in the country.

"He is a role model for everyone around the country, really. A role model for me definitely. He’s someone who wasn’t painted in the greatest light in the media for a long time."

2. World class: The Liverpool defender rated Sterling as a World class player who have proven himself over the years.

"Raheem has been a world-class player for a number of years," said Alexander-Arnold, as quoted by the Mirror. "The consistency and goals he has added to his game in the last four or five years, the way he has evolved from a boy to a man, has been spectacular to see.

3: Dependable: The Manchester City star is seen as a dependable person both on and off the pitch.

Arnold said Sterling has gone through a lot while growing up, yet is still improving on himself and growing up stronger.

"People concentrated on Raheem for a lot of things and he dealt with that as a young lad, focused on his football, developed and turned himself into a world-class player and world-class person.

"He’s someone who I know a lot of the young lads look up to and want to try to emulate."
