Jordon Ibe keen to replace Raheem Sterling

The young midfielder admits that the new Manchester City signing is a hard act to follow but is keen to do well to fill the void

Raheem Sterling left Liverpool amidst controversial circumstances to sign a lucrative deal with Manchester City and it is quite clear that someone in the Reds squad will have to step up and fill the void that has been left following the winger’s departure.

One of those players touted to replace the Englishman is Jordon Ibe who definitely has the talent to be a real star for his team in the coming months.

“He’s a good player, I’m happy for him,” Ibe told Channel 9.

“It’s a chance for me to prove myself to the gaffer and hopefully I can get a chance to play in the Premier League.”

“It’s good for all the young players to get out there, especially for me,” he said.

“Hopefully, I can do well in the pre-season, improve and show I can play in the first team.

“It’s been a lot of hard work, a lot of double sessions, but I’m enjoying the training, hopefully when the season starts we’re all fit and we can win games.”
