Raheem Sterling was allegedly subject to racial abuse and physically attacked on Saturday morning as Manchester City players prepared for their game against Tottenham, James Ducker of the Telegraph reports.
The 23-year-old arrived at City’s training ground by car and was confronted by a man who called him a ‘n****r’ during a barrage of verbal abuse.
Sterling exited his car to ask the man what his problem was, and was then kicked in the leg by the individual, who was not known to Raheem.
It is unknown yet if Manchester City have decided to report the incident to the police, but the whole event is thought to have been captured on CCTV cameras.
The City star didn’t suffer any injuries and showed his mental strength later in the day when he scored two goals during City’s win over Spurs at the Etihad, taking his tally to 11 goals in 16 league appearances this season.
