Raheem Sterling says it's a dream come true to win the Capital One Cup with Manchester City in the area he grew up in at Wembley.

The City forward is fortunate - he missed two golden chances but saw his team-mates come good as they lifted the trophy against Liverpool at Wembley.

And Sterling has made the honest admission that it was difficult to celebrate against some of his close friends in football who play for Liverpool.

He wrote on Instagram: "Dream come true to win league cup and in the area I grew up...But also difficult to celebrate against some my close friends in football, but have to give all the praise too the most high#togodbetheglory"

The youngster left the Reds for Manchester City over the summer and was heavily booed by Liverpool fans whenever he touched the ball.

Ultimately, however, his choice to join City (for a higher wage) and to win trophies has been justified. The Reds were narrowly beaten on penalties but Man City are the winners and that's all that matters at the end of the day.

City will now travel to Anfield to face Liverpool again in the Premier League next week...
