Raheem Sterling has taken to Instagram to declare his love for former club Liverpool, claiming they’ll always remain in his heart.
The Manchester City trickster took part in a Q&A session using the Instagram account of Colossal Sports Management, the company who looks after his representation.
Sterling signed for City back in 2015 for £49 million and the 25-year-old has won two Premier League titles at the Etihad Stadium.
He was asked by a supporter whether he would ever consider returning to Anfield at another stage in his career.
He told the Instagram account: “Would I ever go back to Liverpool? To be honest with you I love Liverpool.
“Don’t get it twisted, they are always in my heart. It’s a team that’s done a lot for me growing up so…”
Sterling was a popular figure during his time at Liverpool and very nearly led the team to a Premier League title before his departure.
Following these latest comments, Liverpool supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
It would seem that some can’t look past the fact that Sterling walked out on Liverpool and aren’t interested in his kind words.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Anfield faithful after the Manchester City man’s comments.
Suarez, Coutinho and now Sterling. There is something special at Liverpool thats not replicated else where. But they all left on bad notes so wont be welcomed back.

Not a hope. He is a snake.

Not surprising that plenty of footballers now want in on some of that Jürgen Klopp magic. But truth is, Reds are in great position to pick and choose, so most of you will walk elsewhere. #YNWA
