‘We Would Never Want You Back’ ‘No Thanks’ Fans On Twitter React As Ex Liverpool Star Hints At Future Return To Anfield

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has refused to rule out returning to Liverpool one day. The 25-year-old controversially left Anfield in 2015 for £49m amid a war of words between his agent and the Reds’ hierarchy.

Asked whether he would ever return to the team that gave him his senior debut, Sterling replied that he still loved the Merseyside club:

“Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you I love Liverpool. Don’t get it twisted, they are always in my heart. It’s a team that done a lot for me growing up so…”

Whether Liverpool fans would ever want him back, though, is another matter entirely. Most supporters on Twitter would not like to see him return in the future:

There was a lot of acrimony surrounding Sterling’s departure five years ago, and some of that bitterness still lingers among the fanbase.

The likelihood of the England international ever returning is rather low anyway with the player currently negotiating with Manchester City over a new contract. His current deal at the Etihad expires in 2023 but the Citizens are keen to tie him down for even longer.
