Manchester City and England International star Raheem Sterling has been caught in yet another controversy as fresh images of him smoking a Shisha Pipe have been leaked online. Sterling, who left Liverpool to join Manchester City had similar troubles at the Anfield club where he was pictured smoking Shisha on two separate occasions.
During that time, Brendan Rodgers had supported his under-fire superstar and earned him not to do that ever again. According to experts, one Shisha session is more dangerous that smoking 100 cigarettes at once.
Watch Sun’s exclusive image of Sterling smoking a Shisha PipeAccording to The Sun, these new images of Sterling smoking a Shisha pipe have come 24 hours after the winger netted in his team’s 2-0 win over Estonia. The Shisha controversy has not only marred his performance but has also put a degree of question mark over his attitude and commitment towards the game.
There were suggestions made at the time of Sterling’s transfer that Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal were interested in signing the player, but were not sure about his off-field antics and it led them to back-off from the proposed move and allow Manchester City to sign him from Liverpool.
So far, there have been no statements made by either Sterling’s representatives or from Manchester City concerning the leaked images of the £49million winger smoking a Shisha pipe. One of the onlookers who watched Sterling in the bar commented: “It was a surprise to see a high-profile player smoking a shisha pipe. He was out with mates and clearly enjoying himself.”
Sterling has one more game left to play for England’s 2016 Euro 2016 qualifying campaign and after that he will return to club football. It is yet to be seen if Sterling’s national team’s manager Roy Hodgson picks him for the game against Lithuania tomorrow night.
