Pablo Zabaleta insists Sterling is no Man City legend

Raheem Sterling is not a club legend.

Former Man City defender Pablo Zabaleta has played with Sterling for two seasons and accused him of being disrespectful to his former club.

He believes that Sterling doesn’t belong in the same bracket as the likes of Sergio Aguero and David Silva.

Sterling joined Chelsea this summer ending his seven-year spell at the Etihad.

Zabaleta’s comments come after we saw a footage where Sterling refused to sign a Man City shirt.

Zabaleta said: “For me when you say legend [I think of] Aguero, Silva, [Vincent] Kompany. Those guys were on a different level, that’s why they have statues outside of the club.

“Raheem, he’s been great. We wish him of course all the best. He went to a team that is a big contender for the Premier League, but as I say, I wish him all the best. He’s a great lad,” added the Argentine.

“But Man City is always the most important thing for the fans and for the players and when you come to this club you have to give 100 per cent respect, and the moment that you leave you need to talk nicely about the club that you’ve been playing for, so I wish he could behave that way.”
