    Raheem Sterling tells incredible story about his daughter

    Raheem Sterling has suffered at the hands of the media – perhaps as much or more so than most players in the game at the minute, so it’s brilliant to see the player share some positive stories about his life, and speak about the tough times he faced when growing up.

    The Man City player spoke about his mother, life in Jamaica and cleaning toilets to help make ends meet – and while all of that should put the likes of the tabloid press to shame, one story stuck out, and is as heartwarming as they come.

    It’s about his daughter, who seems to be a huge Liverpool fan – despite her dad of course playing for Man City.

    Sterling wrote in the Players’ Tribune:

    “My daughter is a bit cheeky. My mum warned me this was gonna happen. Around six years old they start developing a little attitude, you know? So the other day, my daughter’s running round the house singing a little song. And her dad had just won the league with City. Just got 100 points in the league, actually. Does she care?

    Haaaaa! Mate, she don’t give two Scooby-Doos about Manchester City. She’s Liverpool through and through.

    So she’s running through the halls — and I swear to God she runs exactly like her dad. Chest puffed way out, back arched, hand flapping about a bit. She’s running through the halls like Raheem Sterling, and you know what she’s singing?  

    Mo Salah! Mo Salah! Mo Salah!

    Runnin’ down the wing!

    Salahhhhh la la la la la la la!

    Egyptian king!

    Can you believe that? Cold-blooded, mate.”

    England

    After his stunning season for Man City, Sterling now has to focus on the World Cup and England – and could well be fighting for his place, with many people questioning if Marcus Rashford should start ahead of him.

    One thing is for sure – Sterling has a huge amount of talent, and even off the bench, would be a serious threat for England – and is yet to make his mark at this World Cup.

    Given the amount of adversity he’s already overcome in his life, seeing him score a winner for England would undoubtedly be the icing on the cake for the player – and if he scores for England, at least his daughter might celebrate this time!
