Piers Morgan might want to think twice before tweeting about Raheem Sterling again.
The Good Morning Britain presenter was like many today as they reacted to the Manchester City and England attacker’s honest article in The Players’ Tribune.
Sterling wrote about his upbringing, including cleaning hotel toilets with his mum and the separation he had from her at the start of his life.
It showed a side to Sterling that many don’t get to see and highlighted how some of the media portrayals of the players are totally wrong.
And Morgan agreed – but still couldn’t resist a dig at Sterling’s ‘flashy, cocky’ footballer image:
Very interesting piece by @sterling7. I still don't like his machine gun tattoo, but he shows a very different side to his flashy, cocky footballer image here.
His mum sounds great too. https://t.co/m4X1aTBNR6

What Morgan forgot was that Sterling doesn’t actually have a ‘flashy, cocky’ image – but he does, as some followers pointed out.
Just have a look at a few of these replies:
