Roy Hodgson on Sterling development

Roy Hodgson on Raheem Sterling: “Raheem has definitely matured as player and person, he’s taken a lot of responsibility lately to stand up and become a spokesman for the discrimination we’re experiencing…”

Roy Hodgson: “When I see them speak I sometimes think back how they were when they first bought into that national team, how shy they were and how anxious they were in front of the TV cameras… I now see them handle them with aplomb, and that’s a credit to them…”

Roy Hodgson: “As a player, no doubt he’s scoring goals. In the beginning that was a criticism leveled at him which was a fair one. You couldn’t do that now, he’s scoring lots of goals, he’s benefited I think from playing with the quality of players around him at Man City…”

Roy Hodgson: “He’s got a very good coach who’s helping him, City and England are seeing the benefits. I hope I can say these nice things and he’ll be nice and quiet on Sunday and won’t torment us.”
