Raheem Sterling makes major gaffe following Manchester City move

Published 2 Comments

It seems Raheem Sterling has not quiet registered his move from Manchester City to Liverpool as of yet.

The England international completed a £49 million move from Anfield to the Etihad on Wednesday and has since completed all the formalities that go with a move to a new club.

However while signing footballs for some of City's youth players it seems Sterling forgot his new shirt number.

The 20-year-old will wear the number seven at his new club, but that fact seemed to slip his mind as he signed the number 31 with his autograph, his squad number at old club Liverpool.

In the video from Inside City, a series showing the behind the scenes footage on the clubs official YouTube channel, Sterling can been seen laughing at his gaffe along with some Manchester City officials.

The deal that saw Sterling join City makes him the most expensive English player in football history, eclipsing the £30m fee that saw Andy Carroll move from Newcastle United to Liverpool. The wide man will be hoping he does better than Carroll following his big money move.

If his performances on the pitch are anything like this performance off it then it could be a tough ride for the youngster at the Etihad.

However, we have a feeling Sterling will fare better once he steps onto the hallowed turf. The thought of one of Europe's hottest young talents linking up with the likes of Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Samir Nasri in Yaya Toure is enough to get most fans excited about this coming season.

If Sterling can recreate the form he showcased during his one full season alongside Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge then City will be an exciting team to watch next season.
