Mourinho slams Raheem Sterling for his performances at the World Cup

Raheem Sterling

Jose Mourinho has not been impressed by Raheem Sterling’s performances at the 2018 World Cup. The Manchester City forward was given a starting position in six of England’s seven games at the tournament, but failed to score a single goal and only providing one assist.

Mourinho wasn’t impressed: “A little bit surprising for me is Sterling in the team because he did not have a good World Cup,” said the Manchester United manager when he was asked about England’s line-up in the third-place play-off at the World Cup in Russia.

“He didn’t have a good enough World Cup to be chosen for a match in front of Vardy, Welbeck and Rashford – people with probably better conditions from a physical and psychological point of view to start the game.”
