Pep Guardiola says his Manchester City players have to “speak on the pitch” when asked about Raheem Sterling considering leaving the club.

Sterling admitted this week he would consider leaving City and moving abroad, saying: “If I want my happiness at a certain level I need to be playing football. I need to be scoring goals and enjoying myself.”

The 26-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular place in Guardiola’s side this calendar year, and has started just twice in this season’s Premier League.

When asked for his view on Sterling’s comments, Guardiola said: “I didn’t know [about] it, and I think the club didn’t either.

“But I cannot assure how many minutes every player is going to play. Always they have to speak on the grass, on the pitch. That is the best moment.

“Not just Raheem – all of them. They know they are going to play minutes. I’m not a guy who only plays 11 players and that’s all. All of them are involved.

“What I want from Raheem and everyone is to be happy – they have to be satisfied to be here, they have to be delighted to be in this club.

“It’s not just Raheem but all of them want to play every game, 90 minutes but I cannot give them that. I cannot assure them. They have to prove every training session on the pitch and try to be happy there.”
