Recent reports suggest that Chelsea forward Raheem Sterling may face a football ban following his behavior in the Tottenham vs Chelsea match. The 1-4 victory on Monday, November 6, 2023, witnessed Chelsea’s success against a 9-man Tottenham side, but Sterling’s involvement is under scrutiny for allegedly throwing an object back at a fan.
The incident, speculated from a video on Chelsea’s official TikTok account and unnoticed by referees, is now being investigated by the Football Association (FA). The Daily Mail, a UK media outlet, reported on the potential ban, drawing parallels with Richarlison’s previous ban for a similar incident during his time at Everton.
In another setback for Sterling, he has once again been excluded from England’s squad for the upcoming international break. The squad list, revealed on Thursday, November 9, 2023, raises concerns about his participation in the UEFA Euros 2024.
Speculations about a fallout between Sterling and England’s head coach, Gareth Southgate, have circulated, but Southgate has denied these rumors. He stated, “We started on a good run, and the performances in June were excellent, so we’ve stuck with that group. Raheem looks invigorated, but we’re really pleased with the team.”
