Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has narrated how the Premier League champions dealt with the cruel exit from the Champions League last week.
The exit from Europe’s premier club competition put paid to the Citizens’ quest to win an unprecedented quadruple (four trophies).
Manchester City were eliminated by fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur via the away goals rule.
Former Liverpool player Sterling scored two goals as Manchester City beat Spurs 4-3 in their Champions League quarterfinal second leg clash at the Etihad Stadium but it was not enough after they had lost the away leg 1-0.
Sterling thought he had scored another goal in added time to take Manchester City to the Champions League semifinals only for VAR to disallow his goal.
In his latest interview via Goal, Raheem Sterling revealed how Pep Guardiola dealt with the Champions League exit,
Sterling said that Guardiola told his players including him to be angry about the exit from Europe and that they should channel that angry energy into focusing on their objective for the remainder of the season.
The objective for Manchester City is to win both the Premier League and the FA Cup thereby completing a fantastic treble on the domestic scene.
Manchester City had won the Carabao Cup in February via a penalty shootout victory over Chelsea in their final clash.
