The 24-year-old captain was named Gareth Southgate & # 39; s Nations League semi-final
Redknapp told Sky Sports: & # 39; If you were to say that he would have been an English captain two years ago, I would never have believed you.
& # 39; I would not have thought a chance. He does not have the personality for it. Now he has become a leader.
& # 39; He helps young players. This is what we do in this country now, we produce players like him.
& # 39; To see the development of these young players and to see what could happen to Raheem Sterling, it's great for English football. & # 39;
Gary Neville also believes that Sterling could be the captain of the city in the future, while Vincent Kompany is leaving Etihad this summer.
Neville said: & # 39; He had to earn it [the captaincy] because he has been through difficult moments.

& # 39; The Man City captain is also on the right track and there are not too many outstanding characters to take over from Vincent Kompany.
& # 39; If you think where he has been in recent years, he has been at a few low moments. And now he [Sterling] looks like he can handle it.
& # 39; That is the most important thing for young players to get through these difficult moments.
& # 39; They are stretched all the time. He is isolated and alienated by the British media, he is alienated by some of the British fans who travel to watch England and is the target.
& # 39; It took a lot of courage to talk about racism and he recorded the media.
& # 39; It might be wrong for him, but he has made a big, brave decision. Everyone warmed him up. He has made mistakes. All young people do that.
Jamie Carragher also greeted the West Ham midfielder Declan Rice on Thursday evening
& # 39; Now it's a new challenge, it's a responsibility, other players will look forward to him. & # 39;
Jamie Carragher also greeted West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, who made his second appearance for England on Thursday.
Carragher said: & # 39; You would not be surprised to see him [Rice] as a captain in two or three years if he strengthens that position.
& # 39; If you ask me in 12 months, I think he will be our best position there [the position of the holding midfield]. I think his death is very underestimated. & # 39;
Redknapp also praises Rice: & # 39; It's a real test for him. Against Wijnaldum and Co. We're going to talk about a player who can hold that position for long and long. & # 39;
