Man City attacker Sterling: I apologise to ref

Manchester City midfielder Raheem Sterling was delighted after their 6-0 thrashing of Champions League opponents Shakhtar Donetsk.

Sterling struck in the rout.

He remarked: "It was a massive win. The Lyon match [1-2 home defeat in September] was one of those a wake-up calls. You lose the ball and these good teams can punish you."

About the first penalty awarded, when he kicked the turf and tripped over, Sterling added: "I went to chip the ball and don't know what happened.

"I didn't feel contact. I scuffed the ball. Apologies to the ref."
