Raheem Sterling reacts to show off accusations

Raheem Sterling has react to severe critics of him always ‘showing off” his wealth online.

The Englishman of Jamaican descent is a well paid footballer, he is currently earning about £325,000 per week at Chelsea and a net worth of $50m.

When addressing the whole situation, he said;

“You know, it’s sad that I even have to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway. There’s a perception in certain parts of the media that I love “bling.” I love diamonds. I love to show off. I really don’t understand where that comes from.

Especially when I bought my mum a house. It was unbelievable what some people were writing. I think it’s really sad that people do that. They hate what they don’t even know. A few years ago, I would let it get to me. I’d be saying to my mum ‘Why are they picking on me?’

But now as long as my mum and my sister and my kids don’t have any stress, I’m good. If people want to write about my mum’s bathroom in her house, all I have to tell you is that 15 years ago, we were cleaning toilets in Stonebridge and getting breakfast out of the vending machine.

If anybody deserves to be happy, it’s my mum. She came to this country with nothing and put herself through school cleaning bathrooms and changing bed sheets, and now she’s the director of a nursing home.”
