Man City ace Sterling: I knew Sancho quality from first day

Manchester City midfielder Raheem Sterling has hailed the ability of England teammate Jadon Sancho.

Sancho left City two seasons ago for Borussia Dortmund.

City ace Sterling, 24, said: “The first day I'd seen him training with us, I was really happy to see such a talent.

“I always knew he'd become the player he has, for sure. From minute one.

“I was playing right-back one day in pre-season training and he spun me and I nearly did my back in."

Sancho, who turns 19 on Monday, might now look at Sterling as something of a role model as he looks to build on his amazing start at Borussia Dortmund.

But Sterling smiled as he said: “I want to be like him! He's a great talent and I'm really happy for him."
