Pep Guardiola explains Sterling departure after his controversial comments

Raheem Sterling was apparently raging after his exit.

The England international joined Chelsea this summer and recently admitted his frustration behind his departure from the Etihad.

Sterling said: “Everyone wants to feel wanted, football is no different. When you play your heart out, sacrifice some of your kids’ birthdays, and then get treated in a certain way, it’s disappointing.

“At the time I was fuming, raging, but it’s gone, it’s in the past and I can only focus on the present.

Pep Guardiola was asked about recent departures at the club and he gave his thoughts about unhappy players at the club.

He said: “If you force one person to stay when he doesn’t want to stay how can you get the best from him? It’s impossible.

“I wouldn’t want to move anyone on now. I love this squad I have. I feel comfortable training with them because after six, seven years we know each other incredibly well. In the bad moments I know how they react; they are incredible professionals.

“I would love to stay all together but at the same time the transfer window ends in 10-15 days and if a player wants to leave then we will find a solution. Which one, I don’t know but we will find it.”
