Sterling's transfer from Liverpool to Man City was 'never about money' - Rodgers

Raheem Sterling's blockbuster move from Liverpool to Manchester City was never about money, according to his former manager Brendan Rodgers.

The England international joined City in 2015 from Merseyside in a £49 million (€53m/$58m) transfer - which was a record for an English player at the time.

Reds fans were devastated to see the 20-year-old talent leave their club, with the winger looking primed to become a world-class player after scoring 23 goals in 129 appearances.
