Pellegrini Comments on Sterling's Return Status
Monday, April 18
"Sterling is coming back from an important injury we’ll see if he can play some minutes tomorrow [vs. Newcastle United]," said City boss Manuel Pellegrini. "It depends on the way he returns."
Sterling Absence Leaves Void on City's Left Flank
The England man completed a big-money move to City during the summer of 2015 and instantly became City's first-choice option on the left wing.
Purchased for an initial £44 million, Sterling combined well with fellow summer arrival Kevin De Bruyne before the Belgian went down with an injury of his own in January, after which City's Premier League title bid faltered alarmingly.
Reinforcements are hardly in abundance at the Etihad Stadium, with recently returned Samir Nasri suffering another knock that kept him out against Newcastle, per the club, meaning Sterling's return is a welcome sight.
