Sterling’s first words
It’s been a great first week, I’m really settling in and the boys have made me feel really welcome, it’s been a good first week.
A few of the boys from the national team, Mase [Mount], Chilly [Chilwell] to name a few, I’ve got a good connection with Callum [Hudson-Odoi] already.
Playing against each other you always speak on matchdays and it’s been a group that is a feared unit.
It was a good feel and they welcomed me really well and I feel at home already and I’m going to keep putting the work in, I can’t wait to gel even more with them.
