Mourinho savages Sterling’s World Cup performance

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has questioned whether England star Raheem Sterling was in good enough shape, either physically or psychologically, to perform well at this summers World Cup in Russia.

Despite the Three Lions reaching the semi-final, Sterling drew plenty of flak from fans for missing some excellent chances, and he finished his tournament with no goals or assists to his name.

Even in the build up to the Word Cup Sterling was on the end of some appalling treatment by the British tabloid press and Mourinho also feels that this must of had an effect on the Man City star.

In fact the Manchester United boss believes there were a few players who would have made a better impact than Sterling if given a chance by Gareth Southgate:

“I was a little bit surprised that Sterling was in the team,” Mourinho said.

“He did not have a good World Cup.

“He didn’t have a good enough World Cup to be chosen for a match ahead of Vardy, Welbeck, Rashford.

“They are people with probably better condition from a physical and psychological point of view.”
