Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has slammed the critics who claim the England international is motivated by money.
Sterling was heavily criticised after his £49 million move from Liverpool to City in the summer, but the 20-year-old is adamant the decision to leave Anfield was about winning silverware, no a fatter pay check.
Speaking ahead of England's friendly match with Spain this week Sterling told reporters: "My ambitions are purely about challenging for silverware and trying to win stuff for my club and country. Everyone has the same dreams. I'm just trying to make those dreams a reality."
"I'm working hard every day to be the best I can be. And hopefully one day I can look back on my career and I'll have quite a lot of trophies behind me. I set goals for every season, and that's to win everything this season. It's just another year of trying to achieve something."
