PEP GUARDIOLA’S selection to drop Raheem Sterling to the bench for Manchester City’s clash against Watford has enraged Fantasy Football players.
The Citizens winger – who has currently banged in 5 Premier League ambitions in as lots of games – is a firm favourite amongst fans, with lots of expecting him to be a assured starter.
And Sterling boasts a brilliant record against the Hornets – chipping in with eight ambitions and two assists in seven matches.
But the former Barcelona boss has opted to start out Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva alongside Sergio Aguero up prime at the Etihad.
Taking to Twitter to voice his aggravation, a single fan stated: “Pep’s a p**** for benching Sterling.”
A further commented: “He’s benched Sterling, the bald p****. The a single City player who I believed was rotation proof.”
A third added: “So I triple captain Sterling and Pep decides he desires to bench him? Oh ffs.”
1 disappointed supporter stated: “Pep benched Sterling my fpl captain… It has ended in tears for me.”
Although a single merely stated: “STERLING ON THE BENCH I F****** HATE PEP.”
Former 3 Lions left-back Ashley Cole not too long ago claimed that Sterling will go down as a single of England’s greatest ever players.
Although Jamie Carragher insisted that his former Liverpool group-mate is a far better player than Paris Saint-Germain winger Neymar.
But Guardiola told Sterling to ignore the comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
