The REAL Raheem Sterling is very different from the public portrayal
People who write about Raheem Sterling divide neatly into two camps â" those who portray him as a quiet, decent kid who happens to be a very good footballer, and those who trash him as some kind of 21st-century monster.
Strangely, that split falls exactly between those who have actually got to meet the Manchester City winger, and those who cower behind desks, spouting poisonous bile about someone they do not know â" and don't care to know.
For those of you fortunate enough not to have seen it, one national newspaper today led its front page on the fact that Sterling has had a tattoo of a rifle on his right leg .
We have a US president contemplating nuclear war, we have Brexit threatening to tear the country apart, and we have a terrible crisis in the NHS.
