Sterling on Mata’s Statement during Manchester United’s defeat to Manchester City



During the closing stages of City’s 3-1 win against United at the Etihad Stadium by doing several stepovers with the ball to run down the clock.

In a statement sterling revealed ‘I was keeping the ball in the corner. I can understand if we had lost the ball, and they’d gone down the other end, but I am trying to waste time, attract a foul. ‘I wasn’t trying to take the mickey out of them that they have lost.

‘That’s not my thing. Juan Mata just said, ‘Show a little bit of respect.’ I wasn’t trying to disrespect them. I wouldn’t. ‘I was just trying to keep the ball in the corner and entertain the fans at the same time.’
