Rotation no issue for Sterling


Raheem Sterling has accepted he will have to work hard if he is to secure his place in the Manchester City starting line-up.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini has a wealth of talent at his disposal and the competition for places means players are not guaranteed a place in the starting team.

Sterling was named on the bench for the second time in three matches in Tuesday's Capital One Cup quarter-final against Hull but came on to help his team secure a semi-final berth.

In his few months at the club, Sterling has accepted squad rotation is part and parcel of life at City and he is determined to take advantage of whatever opportunities he gets.

"The players in the squad are capable of starting in any game and if the manager puts them out there, I am sure they will do the business," he told Press Association Sport.

"Obviously everyone wants to play every game but that cannot happen at this level, you have to get rotated at times and that is what happened.

"I was on the bench but when I come on the pitch, I have to try to contribute as much as I can for the team."
