Leroy Sane openheartedly praised the performance of his Manchester City teammate Raheem Sterling this season and believes Sterling is working really hard to get better out of him in future. Sterling was one of the main forces of Manchester City’s title run last season while scoring 18 times in the league.

The Sky Blues finished 19 points clear ahead of their nearest rivals Manchester United last season under Pep Guardiola. And this season too, they are in a great form and is now currently in a battle with Liverpool to finally hold the top place of the Premier League 2018-19 table. Raheem Sterling, on the other hand, is also on the course of surpassing his tally as he already scored nine times till now.
