Raheem Sterling Could Be The Face Featured On The New English £20 Note

Raheem Sterling Could Be The Face Featured On The New English £20 Note

It actually looks like there is a reasonable chance that Raheem Sterling is about to be the next face on English £20 notes.

The England winger, 20, joined Manchester City earlier this week after an acrimonious split from previous club Liverpool.

Despite his protestations, many believe Sterling’s move is financially motivated, after penning a deal thought to be in the region of £180,000-per-week at The Etihad Stadium.

The Bank of England – the people who make our money – have launched an online vote which allows the public to nominate a figure who should appear on the new £20 note and the brilliantly creative minds at www.crossconnor.com have decided to hijack the poll.

Voting closes tomorrow and rumour has it that the diminutive attacker is actually ahead in the polls. Would The Bank of England really let it happen? Surely that’s what a good, democratic vote is all about? I suppose we’ll find out tomorrow.
