Sterling: “Gomez and I are Good”

Sterling: “Gomez and I are Good”


 

Raheem Sterling admitted emotions got the better of him in a bust-up with Joe Gomez, but the England star is moving on after being dropped.

The Manhcester City winger was reportedly involved in a physical confrontation with Gomez at England’s training base on Monday and has been dropped for Thursday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.

The FA announced on Monday that Sterling was dropped as a result of a “disturbance in a private team area at St. George’s Park”, ruling him out for the Montenegro match while leaving the door open for a return against Kosovo.

Sterling and Gomez were also involved in an altercation during Liverpool’s 3-1 win over the Premier League champions on Sunday.

That win kept Liverpool unbeaten in the Premier League while opening up a nine-point gap between the two sides, with Leicester and Chelsea sandwiched in between in second and third place, respectively.

In a post on Instagram, Sterling said it was time to move on, but admitted he had let his emotions get the better of him during the incident.

“First and foremost everyone knows what that game means to me!” he wrote on his official Instagram account.

“Everyone knows that I am not that way inclined and more to the point … both Joe and I have had words and figured things out and moved on.”
