Agreed, Pep was always hard on him, pushing him, sometimes you can push too hard and the player no longer responds, I think that's where we are now with Sterling.To me he looks like a player who has lost his confidence & form & won't get it back for city .
Some players need bollockings & some need an arm round the shoulder ,looks like he needs the latter to me ,but don't think pg a guy who does that .
He's not been the same since the disagreement on the touchline last season .
Can see him going back to the dippers in the summer .
I think he will go over to Spain, but in saying that, who would want him there and who could afford his wages alone?
