: Shaun Goater explains why Raheem Sterling is no longer in Messi and Ronaldo conversation

Man City legend Shaun Goater believes Raheem Sterling’s dip in form means he is no longer in the same conversation as Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

The England international started the season in excellent form but is without a goal since December.

Goater told


“I think Sterling’s going through a bad patch, and this has probably been two or three weeks, and we’re seeing Sterling miss a couple of chances he’s had in one-on-ones.

“There have been chances with balls that just need to be put over the line, I don’t know from six, seven yard s out and he’s missing them. In any other season, these would have been tap-ins and we’d have thought nothing of it.

“Gabriel Jesus seems to hit form and then sort of go in and out of form. So I think he’ll be having a real good look at a center-forward, certainly over the summer.

“But with Raheem Sterling, at the start of the season he was absolutely on fire and then Guardiola dropped him.

“So is it not Pep’s own fault really for his drop in form, because you can’t score a goal from the bench?

“Yes, it’s interesting because when a player’s on form you want to play, but this is when the rotation comes in and resting players. And some games you could say yes, he warranted it to just leave him and keep him hot for the following game.

“But we’re now looking in – because, you know, it’s Raheem Sterling. I was one of those that was saying he needs to be part of that conversation when you talk about Messi and Ronaldo and these players.

“But his form, certainly in the last two or three weeks, has just dropped off that much that it’s nowhere near that conversation. But yes, Pep rested him early part of the season and now we’re probably looking back and thinking he should have just let him keep going. Yes. ”

City told why Grealish might not fit at the Etihad

Former City defender Danny Mills says Jack Grealish might not have the discipline to play for a Pep Guardiola side.

Guardiola admitted he was a fan of Grealish after the two sides met recently.

“Jack Grealish has got all the ability in the world. He’s one of those players, when you look back and we looked at the likes of [Jack] Wilshere and thought he’s going to be the replacement for Paul Gascoigne.

“We have not seen anybody like that, somebody who carries the ball, has an awkward running style at times, but takes the ball, runs at people and makes things happen.

“The only down side for Jack Grealish at the moment is, because he’s in a struggling side, because he loves that club so much, he’s captain, He’s almost trying to do too much. ”

“Does he have the ability to play for one of those top sides? Without a shadow of a doubt. No question about it. The only thing, and this is probably for England as well, is because he has to play that role for Villa, he has no choice, maybe one or two clubs are thinking ‘is he disciplined enough to play a certain role within the structure of my team? ‘

“When you look at Manchester City, the way that they play, they all sit in their own little pockets, They very rarely go wandering.

“I know their front three or four players are very fluid, but they all have a certain job to do. Pep Guardiola works on the grid system on the pitch. ”
