Chelsea fans embarrassed for Raheem Sterling after “uncomfortable” moment in interview


Chelsea fans were left baffled at an awkward incident involving Raheem Sterling in his post-match interview in the aftermath of Chelsea’s 4-4 draw with Manchester City at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 4 Man City 4: John Cross’ verdict

Chelsea fans were left cringing after their side’s dramatic draw with Manchester City as Sky Sports reporter Patrick Davidson attempted to take grass out of Raheem Sterling ’s eye.

The England forward had played a key role for his side at Stamford Bridge after initially putting his side 2-1 ahead in the first half. While Chelsea could not hold on to victory – Cole Palmer eventually scoring late on to secure a 4-4 draw – there were still some more dramatics for Sterling to navigate late on.

During his post-match interview with Sky Sports, Sterling was pictured rubbing his eye. Interviewer Davidson noticed and said: “Huge display of character, wasn’t it, Raheem? Have you got something in your eye? What’s going on here?!”

Things then got even more bizarre as Davidson offered to try and remove whatever was bothering the forward. “Crazy game followed by…Oh you’ve got a bit…come here. You’ve got a bit of grass in your eye,” he said.

However, Sterling did not appear up for receiving any assistance. He replied: “You’re going to put some more dirt in my eye!”

Luckily, the rest of the interview went by without any more hitches. Supporters weren’t overly convinced though and took to social media with their thoughts on the exchange.
