Man City ace De Bruyne has Suarez qualities – Sterling

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has compared teammate Kevin De Bruyne to former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.


Sterling struck up a prolific combination with Suarez during three seasons together at Anfield and sees similarities between Belgian international De Bruyne and the Barcelona ace.

"With Suarez, you knew once he got in and around the box, you knew what he was capable of doing," Sterling said.

"Usually it ended with a goal. It's the same with Kevin. He looks for other players. Look at the assists he's got already and he's got goals in him regularly as well.

"Every top team needs a player like that who scores and assists goals so regularly, like Kevin does.

"It's most important. That's what big players do and we're happy to have him at this football club.

"He's a top player, someone who gets in and around the box and creates and scores goals. That's great for us to have."
