Plays for: Manchester City, England
Ranked: 17th in Premier League
Raheem Shaquille Sterling is a professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the English national team. He received the Golden Boy award for 2014 from a pan-European panel of sports journalists, recognising him as the best under-21 player playing in Europe. A 2015 professional study by Soccerex ranked him as the most valuable young player in Europe, with a value of €49 million.

Born in Jamaica, Sterling moved to London at the age of five and began his career at Queens Park Rangers before signing for Liverpool in 2010. In July 2015, following a lengthy dispute over a new contract, he was signed by Manchester City in a transfer potentially worth £49 million, the highest transfer fee ever paid for an English player.

He represented England at under-16, under-17 and under-21 level before being capped at full level by the national team in November 2012, and performed at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Description provided by Wikipedia

Thank you for sharing the negative part of your amazing journey Raheem & using it positivity to inspire kids of colour to develop a positive identity & strong sense of self. Your star inside & out, one love 💙

An amazing person 💙

I was there the day u did that, no one was allowed to c u? And only seen one year of the school if u was a inspiration to the people of ur community u should speak to the people of that community

Proud of you Raz ❤️

my name is Matthew Tagoe... l from Jamaica to change national move to ENGLAND!

Icon he playing on it. Still singing about sean cox are you loy

Well done Raheem, lead by example xx

Ambassador .... great example to others

Good job sterling!!!!! That will stay w that kid for his whole life and it only probly took you a couple of hours to see him.

What a fantastic guy ❤️testament to his upbringing, obviously from a good family and been brought up well , ❤️

Raheem... As a liverpool supporter I must say... I was annoyed with you at firsr for leaving but I'm over that now... I see you want to talk to the FA and PL about your issues... Bro... Some advice if you read it or not... Don't let their words hurt you or bother... The moment you mention that it affects you.. They win... They achieve their desired result... Don't ever give them that pleasure.... I understand it's not easy being abused like that.. But when you are a young star let alone black.. No one wants to see you grow or evolve... They will do anything to put you down. .. I talk from experience as I receive racism on a daily bases... Just smile and way boy... Smile and wave.... Keep doing what you are doing on the pitch and that will speak for you...racism has been going on years... And the FA and PL haven't really done anything about... There's no solution to weed out the culprits... I feel your efforts will fall on deaf ears...

As a Liverpool supporter I am so proud of this man. He has swayed me.I thought he was a poser but no he is a scorer a provider an all round footballer .Well done. You're brilliant.

When Sterling is about to score on Fifa 19 Alan Smith: Sterrrrrrrliiiiiiing. This guy is a joy to watch

we love you Raz! let the haters hate!

I can’t believe how Pep made Rahem one of the best players in the world honestly Pep Guradiola deserves lots of credits about that!

Well done Raheem they hate you because you’re a fantastic player Keep destroying them with goals

I wanna see you scoring in UCL final. Lots of love Raheem. ❤❤

No to racism but still hate you .

In boxing blacks are the best,in basketball blacks rule the world, in athletics we rule,in football we rule....in everything we are just good...Black is beauty,black is the color....

Disgusting behaviour by so called football fans. You are brave enough and strong enough to let this not affect your outstanding talent.
