Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling has broken his silence in the aftermath of an apparent England fallout with Liverpool’s Joe Gomez.

Yesterday, Gareth Southgate took the decision to not use Raheem Sterling for the upcoming England Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.

According to the Mirror, Southgate had said:

“We have taken the decision to not consider Raheem for the match against Montenegro on Thursday.”

He also highlighted the challenge of keeping fierce rivals separated when the players turn out for international duty.

Since this announcement Sterling, himself has taken to social media in an attempt to defuse the situation and clear the air.


It appears that tensions were still high after Gomez’s Liverpool beat Sterling’s City at the top of the table Premier League clash.

During that game, Gomez and Sterling had a coming together too.

While it appears that everything has now been sorted out, Southgate is sticking by his initial decisions.

This international break though sees a doubleheader, so Sterling could be back in contention for Sunday’s game against Kosovo.
