Raheem Sterling has thanked Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for helping him become the player he is.
The 20-year-old completed his move to Manchester City yesterday, for a fee of around €69 million.
Relations were believed to have been strained between Sterling and Rodgers as the youngster left the club.
He rejected a new five-year contract at Liverpool last season, believed to be worth more than €140,000 per week.
His agent subsequently told the club Sterling wanted to leave Anfield, and would reject an offer of “£900,000 a week” from the club.
Liverpool rejected several offers from City for Sterling, before finally accepting the €69 million bid this week.
Speaking to City TV, Sterling thanked Rodgers “for giving me a chance and an opportunity in the first team, and giving me a real chance to cement a place in the first team and show the world my talents”.
