right-Phillips urged Sterling to commit his future to Manchester City — and get back to doing what he does best.
He told The Sun: “This season he has not played anywhere near as much as previous years.
“I am sure his time will come again. He just needs a goal to go in — however it comes — to get him firing again.
“You just need to look at what he's done in six years and more for the club to see what he's capable of.
“He's made a massive contribution and I still feel like he's got a huge part to play for City in the future.
“Maybe the contract thing is hanging over him. I would like to see him extend his contract and end the questions over his future.
“I know he's said he'd like to play abroad at some point but I don't think there's anywhere better to play football than the Premier League.
“And City are a club which is going to be looking to win silverware for many years to come."
