Man City boss Guardiola: Sterling can play as striker

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says Raheem Sterling is good enough to play as a central striker.

Guardiola would have no issue playing Raheem Sterling through the middle in Sergio Aguero's absence at Manchester United.

"I think he can play as a striker if we need," Guardiola said.

"If you need a striker for the crosses, no. If you need a striker to move between the lines - movements behind the back four - he can do that."
