Sterling did well in Englands 4-0 win over Bulgaria in last weekends Euro Cup qualifying match, delivering success. After the start of the new Premier League season, Sterling also performed well in Manchester City, handing in brilliant data. Neymar returned this week to represent Brazil against Colombia after leaving the national team for several months because of injury. He scored a goal, but Brazil failed to win 2-2.
Cascarino said in an interview that Sterling would be better than the other two in terms of their competitive status. He said Sterling is one of the five best players in the world today. His personal status and contribution to the team are better than Neymars. He is expected to hit the golden ball in the future.
Stirlings data are better. Hes on a better team. I often see that Neymar can do things that other players cant do in the game, such as juggling, but if you need players who can play for the whole team and score with the same efficiency as Neymar, then Sterling is definitely your choice.
In Cascarinos view, Sterlings performance was more convincing last season when two players in the same position, who spent most of their time as left wingers, were compared, because Manchester City showed more terrible dominance.
Im sure hes one of the five best players in the world today, and Im thrilled that Sterling has been making progress and that progress has been remarkable.
If Sterling were to be put on the transfer market now, Manchester City would not be let go even if they offered 150 million pounds. If he keeps improving, he will be one or two of the top players in world football and will probably win the Golden Globe. If he wins the Champions League with Manchester City and plays a very important role, such as scoring a lot of goals, then he has a great chance to compete for the Golden Ball.
