Here's why Chelsea's Raheem Sterling might be banned from playing football
According to recent reports, Chelsea forward Raheem Sterling faces a potential ban from playing football following his recent conduct in the Tottenham vs Chelsea fixture.
The 1-4 cracker, which was played on Monday, November 6, 2023, saw Chelsea emerge victorious against a 9-man Tottenham side. Raheem Sterling is currently facing a potential ban, as it was speculated that the England international had thrown a missile (an object) back at a fan.
According to the UK media outlet Daily Mail, the video of the supposed incident originated from Chelsea's official TikTok account, and although the incident had not been spotted by the referees, the FA are currently investigating the incident.
Reports indicate that he might face up to a match ban like Richarlison had done following his replica of the same situation while at Everton.
Chelsea omitted from England's squad for the second time
Sterling has once again been omitted from England's side ahead of the upcoming international break. The squad list, which was shared today, Thursday, November 9, 2023, could spell a possible risk for his chances of playing at the UEFA Euros in 2024.
Speculations indicate that a fallout between the two might have occurred. England's head coach, Gareth Southgate, has, however, denied the speculations. He stated, "We started on a good run and the performances in June were excellent so we've stuck with that group. We've deliberately not made many changes. Raheem looks invigorated but we're really pleased with the team."
