Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling has set sight on former Manchester United frontman Wayne Rooney’s record in the Champions League.
Sterling has previously matched Rooney’s all-time English goalscoring record of 30 in the Champions League and aims to surpass it when he faces Real Madrid on Tuesday evening at the Etihad.
Sterling,27, scored three goals this season in the Champions League and he is yearning for more said: “It’s like anything – (after) you make your professional debut, it’s then on to the next thing, scoring your first goal.
“Then after scoring your first goal, as a human you always have to try and do better and that’s the case with me every season.
“I try to see how I can improve and all these things that come along. I was trying to see if I can get the England record and that’s what I’ll try to do.”
Sterling’s Manchester City suffered a defeat against Chelsea in the last Champions League final and the Etihad outfit will aim to get to the finals again.
