Sterling could join Messi and Ronaldo among the greats - Guardiola

Pep Guardiola believes Raheem Sterling can reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

England manager Gareth Southgate this week said the Manchester City forward as the potential to become as good as the multiple Ballon d’Or winners after two fine displays in the recent international break.

His club boss Guardiola has now backed up those claims – although the Spaniard has given mixed messages on whether he believes Sterling should read much into such hype.

Mourinho: Kane's record speaks for itself

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho went on the attack in his defence of comments made about Harry Kane by Paul Merson. The Sky Sports pundit suggested Kane would want to leave Spurs because of Mourinho’s pragmatic style of play and picked apart the England captain’s performance in Friday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United. But Mourinho, reading from a piece of paper in a clearly planned response, listed the scoring stats of former strikers Didier Drogba, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Diego Milito and Zlatan Ibrahimovic and said Kane would have no issues scoring goals. “I feel a bit strange at some analysis and some comments, especially as it looks for me at the beginning of some comments and analysis have started from Paul (Merson),” Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference previewing Tuesday’s visit of West Ham.
