Liverpool fans have mocked Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling once more after details of his squabble with Joe Gomez have been revealed.
The two players took part in the Reds’ 3-1 win over the Citizens on Sunday, with goals from Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane helping Jurgen Klopp’s side walk away with all three points.
Sterling admitted that “emotions got the better of me” after lashing out at the Liverpool defender when the pair came face to face at St George’s Park and was omitted from the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2020 Qualifiers as a result.
However, The Athletic have now revealed critical details of the incident in its entirety.
