‘She’s always winding me up!’: Raheem Sterling admits he gets trolled by his own DAUGHTER as she chants Liverpool songs to him… with his old side set to pip Man City to the title
- Man City star Raheem Sterling says his daughter sings Liverpool chants at him
- He revealed young Melody enjoys winding him up and praised her personality
- Sterling played for the Reds for five years before joining City for £50m in 2015
He might be used to getting stick from the stands, but Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has revealed he has been getting an earful from an unlikely source – his own daughter.
Young Melody Sterling has been teasing her dad about his former club Liverpool’s rise to the top of the Premier League this season, and is making sure he remembers by singing the club’s song to him.
He said she particularly liked chanting the Mo Salah song, with the Egyptian playing a huge part in the Reds’ unbeaten season so far with 15 league goals.

Although Manchester City are about to be pipped to the title by their rivals, Sterling says he can take the banter and enjoys Melody’s cheeky personality.
‘She has my sort of personality and she likes to banter and chant Mo Salah’s songs to me,’ he told AS.
‘She knows the rivalry between Liverpool and the team that I play for so she’s always singing their songs and trying to wind me up but that’s just her personality.’
England international Sterling was snapped up by the Reds when he was just 15 years of age, joining from QPR in 2010 and making a quick impact at Anfield – playing 129 games and scoring 23.

There was a feeling, however, that the pacey winger wasn’t fulfilling his potential – and he left for Man City in 2015, where he is more prolific and now staking a claim for one of the best in his position in world football.
Along with Melody, Sterling also has two sons – Thiago and Thai-Cruz, and the 25-year-old said spending quality time with his children was the perfect way for him to unwind and escape from the stresses of the game.
‘Football takes up a lot of your life but at the end of the day when things get rough or tough that is what makes you happy,’ he continued.
‘Seeing your kids is possibly the most important part of your day. They take away everything else that’s going on outside and you can block that out, so when I go home, everything seems perfect.’

But it seems it’s not just his daughter who enjoys winding him up. He also said little Thiago likes to remind him when he fails to find the back of the net.
‘Now my son Thiago is at the age of three and when I finish a game and I don’t score, he lets me know that I didn’t – and he will tell me exactly who scores. So I will have to make sure to score, because my son would tell me that I didn’t score for the next four hours.’
Sterling has continued his electric form in recent seasons with 20 goals in all competitions as he looks to nail down a place for England at Euro 2020 this summer.
He has come on leaps and bounds since making his £50million move to the Etihad, with manager Pep Guardiola making him more dangerous and consistent in front of goal, as well as enjoying more success after two titles and three domestic trophies.
