Raheem Sterling: How Mum And Sister Built My Career

Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling has eulogised his mother and sister for contributing immensely to his football career.

The English player who has played for some of the biggest clubs in the EPL, Liverpool FC and Man City inclusive, revealed in a chat that his mother and sister sacrificed a lot in helping him build his football career.

He said: “She (mother) convinced me to go to QPR, and it was probably the best decision I ever made. At QPR, they didn’t let me slip up.

“But it was quite hard for my family because my mum would never let me go to training alone. And she always had to work, so my sister would have to take me all the way out to Heathrow.

“Three buses. The 18 to the 182 to the 140. We’d leave at 3:15 and get home at 11 p.m. Every. Single. Day. She’d sit upstairs in the little cafe and chill until I was done with training. Imagine being 17 years old and doing that for your little brother. And I never once heard her say, “Nah, I don’t wanna take him.”

“At the time, I didn’t understand how much she was sacrificing. She and my mum got me here. My whole family played a massive part in my life. Without them, you wouldn’t even know me”, Sterling added.
