Sterling back to Liverpool

Report: 28-year-old wanted to re-sign for Liverpool in 2022 but Klopp denied

Raheem Sterling allegedly had an interest in returning to Liverpool last year. The £48 million trade saw the England international leave Manchester City and join Chelsea.

Sterling is a former Liverpool player. And he had a good run in his tenure at Anfield. The former Man City forward joined Chelsea. However, his desire to get back in Anfield came to the surface.

Liverpool as the first choice of Sterling

In 22 appearances in all competitions, Sterling, who started his professional career at Liverpool, has had a mixed experience in West London. He scored six goals and assisted three others in that time. But it seems the Blues weren’t his top pick.

The former Liverpool winger desired a return to Anfield, which he departed in 2015 for Manchester City in a deal worth £49 million. The story does, however, state that the Reds have no interest in re-signing Sterling.

Sterling might have been a good option for Klopp now

Jurgen Klopp could have brought the 28-year-old back had he known then what he knows now. Both Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, who can play on the left side of the attack for Liverpool, have been injured for the majority of the current season.

The German manager could in no way afford to have a left winger injury issue after selling Sadio Mane and Takumi Minamino last summer. Given that, it’s possible Liverpool would have given Sterling greater thought.

However, they now have Cody Gakpo in the lineup, and despite having a subdued debut season under Klopp, the Dutchman has the skill and capacity to light up the Reds.

Five Liverpool players are presently out injured under Jurgen Klopp. The Merseyside giants’ injury history is quite alarming.

With the exception of Cody Gakpo, who was just signed by LFC, just six senior players have managed to stay healthy thus far in the Reds’ 30 games of the 2022–23 season. If the Reds re-signed Sterling, would the situation be different? How do you feel?
