Liverpool: Fans appreciate Raheem Sterling’s condemnation of boos for Joe Gomez

Raheem Sterling came to the defence of England team-mate Joe Gomez following last night’s Euro 2020 qualifying win over Montenegro.

The Liverpool defender, who was involved in an altercation with Sterling earlier this week, was booed by some spectators at Wembley when he was brought on as a 70th-minute substitute, as noted by Sky Sports.

After the match, the Manchester City winger and ex-Reds player took to Twitter to condemn the hostile reaction towards Gomez during the England match. [via @sterling7]

The two players squared up to one another during Liverpool’s 3-1 win over the Premier League champions last weekend and then had an argument with each other at England’s training base in St. George’s Park, which led manager Gareth Southgate to not consider Sterling for selection for the Montenegro game, as reported by Sky Sports.

Sterling, who reportedly grabbed Gomez around the neck during their St George’s Park altercation, subsequently apologised for his actions, while the Liverpool defender apparently asked Southgate not to send the winger home from the squad over the incident.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter were appreciative of Sterling’s post-match tweet defending Gomez:

Was Southgate right to drop Raheem Sterling?

Yes

Yes

No
