Manuel Pellegrini is confident in the goal-scoring abilities of Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling was signed by Manchester City on July of the ongoing year for a transfer fee of €49 million and ever since then, Sterling has turned into a constant starter for the Premier League club as Manuel Pellegrini wants to utilize the services of the player most expensive Englishman ever in the history of football as much as possible.

During Sterling’s time in Anfield, he managed to score 23 goals in 129 games for Liverpool and the Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini is certain that Sterling will be able to score goals than he ever did before in his entire career.

Manchester City voiced his confidence in Raheem Sterling as he said: “I am sure he will score more goals than he did before. I think that he will be a very dangerous player. Maybe we were criticized for the amount we paid for him but I am sure he will demonstrate during the year, especially against the big teams, why he was valued so much.”

Sterling has performed in all of the 4 opening matches of the season of Manchester City but his performances have been average at best. He still has not shown or prove his price tag of €49 million, taking into consideration that he’s only 20 years old; Sterling has enough time to prove why he is being so highly rated.

When it comes to scoring goals, Raheem Sterling has not managed to stand out in any way as he has only scored 1 goal out of the 10 goals that Manchester City has scored from their 4 opening league matches and the young player has had a lot of opportunities to find the back of the net but seems to struggle.
