Raheem Sterling should commit to Manchester City by signing a new contract, says club legend Shaun Wright-Phillips, as the England winger has a “big role to play” for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Despite a promising summer with the Three Lions at Euro 2020, Sterling has returned to a supporting role at City and has started just three of the club’s eight Premier League games this season.

The 26-year-old revealed his desire to leave Etihad Stadium last month if his playing time does not improve, but his teammate, City icon Wright-Phillips, believes he is just one goal away from rekindling his career at the club.

“This season he hasn’t played as much as previous years,” Wright-Phillips said. Sun. I’m sure his time will come again.

“ He only needs one goal to get in, however it comes in, for him to shoot again. You just have to see what he has done in six years and more for the club to see what he is capable of.

“He has made a huge contribution and I still feel like he has a very important role to play for City in the future.”

Sterling never managed to secure a regular spot on the City squad towards the end of last season, as the winger was unable to start a single Champions League quarter-final or semi-final match and was uninspiring in his start in the final loss to Chelsea. .

With the current season now at nine games, Sterling has started the majority of games on the substitute bench, with his only goal of the season coming in a 5-0 thrashing of bottom row Norwich.

Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus has a new role in Pep Guardiola’s City setup on the right wing, while £ 100m signing Jack Grealish currently occupies the left side.

Riyad Mahrez, Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden are also preferred to Sterling in Guardiola’s three forwards so far this season.

Sterling admitted earlier this month that he could leave City, who will also lose Guardiola in 2023, the same year the winger’s contract expires, and the England international revealed a desire to play abroad at some point in his career. career.

“I am not a person to complain, I have not tried to make things more important than they really are,” Sterling admitted on Oct. 14.

‘I continue with my work, I do what I have to do. And I’m looking forward to going: playing soccer games regularly, scoring goals regularly.

“At the end of the day, if football for me is not at a certain level, I am not really happy. If I want my happiness on a certain level, I need to play soccer. I need to score goals and have fun. ”

But Wright-Phillips wants Sterling to set new terms at Etihad Stadium, as he feels City are the best place for the winger right now.

The retired winger added: ‘Maybe the matter of the contract is looming over him. I’d like to see you extend your contract and end questions about your future.

“I know you have said that you would like to play abroad at some point, but I don’t think there is a better place to play football than the Premier League.”

“And City is a club that will seek to win the silver medal for many years to come.”
