Raheem Sterling and the transfer everyone hates

PROP141209-026-Liverpool_Basel-600x412
“Depending on who you talk to, Raheem Sterling is either a naïve puppet, an avaricious sell-sword or a plain old traitor. It’s been several years since a player’s desire to leave a Premier League club has become so acrid. All departing players can expect to be booed on their return. Sterling can expect the bilious depths of a football fan’s considerable ire, nothing less. But, however distasteful the whole affair has been, Sterling has perhaps been cast too lightly as the villain. By any measurement of decency and professionalism (even by the Premier League’s own stunted morality) Sterling has not behaved well. ‘Phoning in sick’ for training is grubby and juvenile but not, I expect, uncommon.” Football Pink
