6 TCC goals
Bought by Chelsea management during the 2022 summer transfer window for a check for 56.20 million euros, Raheem Sterling is not currently having a memorable season. In 25 games played in all competitions, the English striker has scored only 6 goals, for a meager record of 4 achievements in 18 Premier League games. Far from his standards with Manchester City.
We even have to go back to January 1, against the promoted Nottingham Forest (1-1), to find traces of the last goal scored by the former member of the Citizens, who struggles like the whole club of the London capital, tenth of Premier League and whose appointment on the bench of Graham Potter in place of Thomas Tuchel does not bear fruit.
“He committed his long-term future”
What about the situation with the Kingston native’s Blues? In comments relayed by journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 28-year-old player’s agent dotted the “i” on his client’s situation. According to Kelly Hogarth, a departure from Raheem Sterling is not envisaged in the coming months. “Sterling expressed no dissatisfaction with Chelsea, he committed his long-term future to the new owner this summer. His position will not be reviewed in the next transfer window.”
The English international’s contract – 82 caps and 20 goals with the Three Lions – runs until June 2027 with the Stamford Bridge-based team, opposed next Saturday to Leeds United as part of the 26th day. On the European scene, Chelsea will find the Germans of Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 return on March 7, after a 1-0 defeat at Signal Iduna Park in the first leg.
