The Liverpool striker rates the 19-year-old as the best player he has ever played alongside.
Francesco Totti, Andrea Pirlo, Steven Gerrard and Didier Drobga... that's quite a list of players. And what do they all have in common?
Indeed, the Liverpool striker took part in a Q + A session recently and picked the 19-year-old out as the best player he has ever played alongside, despite linking up with a host of Liverpool and Chelsea stars during his career.
As well as Reds skipper Gerrard and Chelsea's Drogba, Borini also particularly rates Pirlo and Totti of those he has played alongside.
None of them, however, quite compare to the talent of Sterling, he says.
"Raheem! I have played with a lot of good players on international duty like Totti, Pirlo, Stevie G, Drogba and the chance to play with all of them was special," the Italian said during a Warrior Q + A when asked who is the best player he has ever played alongside.
Let's hope Borini wasn't just being nice because Sterling was sitting next to him...
