Former Manchester City forward Shaun Wright-Phillips has urged Raheem Sterling to put an end to the ongoing speculation surrounding his future at the club by signing a contract extension.

The England forward has been with City since 2015, when he moved from Liverpool, and has won three Premier League titles with the club.

However, the 26-year-old has been struggling with his form and fierce competition from attacking stars including Phil Foden and club record signing Jack Grealish.

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

Wright-Phillips, who played for City between 2008 and 2011, believes he is just one goal away from reigniting his club career.

‘This season he has not played anywhere near as much as previous years. I am sure his time will come again,’ Wright-Phillips told The Sun.

“He just needs a goal to go in – however it comes – to get him firing again. You just need to look at what he’s done in six years and more for the club to see what he’s capable of,” he added.

“He’s made a massive contribution and I still feel like he’s got a huge part to play for City in the future.”

“Maybe the contract thing is hanging over him.  I would like to see him extend his contract and end the questions over his future”

“I know he (Sterling) has said he’d like to play abroad at some point, but I don’t think there’s anywhere better to play football than the Premier League.”

“And City are a club which is going to be looking to win silverware for many  years to come.”

These Wright-Phillips’s comment on Sterling has prompt Plenty of Sky Blues to react on social media.
