Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has played against a number of top-class players in his fledging career so far.
The teenager’s performances and talent saw him included in Roy Hodgson’s 23-man England squad for the 2014 World Cup in the summer.
The Three Lions had a disastrous campaign in Brazil, but Sterling was one of the few England players who came away with some pride intact.
Sterling has maintained his form so far this season and remains a nightmare to the opposition defenders, but which opponent does he find the most difficult to play against?
‘Vincent Kompany’ was the youngster’s answer to Sky Sports when asked the question.
It should not come as a surprise that Sterling names Kompany as the toughest player he has played against. The Manchester City captain is one of the best defenders in the world and arguably the best centre-back in the Premier League.
Kompany joined the Citizens from Hamburg in the summer of 2008 and has since played an indispensable part in the Manchester outfit’s Premier League (2012 and 2014), FA Cup (2011) and League Cup (2014) triumphs.
