Raheem Sterling signs new three-year contract extension

"I'm delighted to sign", he told the City website. It was a bad decision from the referee.

Referee Victor Kassai pointed to the spot in City's 6-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday when Sterling tripped himself up, kicking the floor trying to chip the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.

"He is an incredible nice guy with incredible love from the locker room". Statistically, his end product since the start of the 2017-18 campaign is above Eden Hazard, Sergio Aguero and David Silva - no-one would bat an eyelid if they were rewarded with this kind of deal, so why should it be different for Raheem? "He is stronger than that - than he was when we met each other in the first year".

Mourinho did not have much to say, just that while he admired Agüero as a scorer - "his numbers speak for themselves, he is a goalscorer all over the world" - there was a side to his character he did not like as much. When you are 23 years old you are not a full person, or a full player. "I admire how the managers react in the tough moments, when you lose games". Agüero might have milked the situation but he was not the one guilty of a head-butt. City did not quite do that a year ago - they bought three full-backs, a goalkeeper and a couple of central defenders - but there is no need to labour the point. To transform players, to bring out their talent, is a process. "You want to try and develop and get better", he said. For Real Madrid this means, that the club have to go back to the drawing board, as there is little to no chance of luring away the 23-year-old from the Etihad Stadium now.

'We're all delighted he has committed his future to City'.

"Jose and myself are lucky as we have had success because we had exceptional players at exceptional clubs". We have won a lot of prizes because we have both been at incredible clubs with incredible players.

"With the facilities we've got here there's no reason not to".
