Getty Images – Getty The duo had clashed during Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Man City on Sunday and tensions boiled over when they met up for international duty less than 24 hours later.It is understood Sterling had to be pulled away by shocked England team-mates after confronting and squaring up to Gomez in a private team area at their training base.Southgate explained his decision and said it had been taken with the agreement of the entire England squad.However, Ferdinand, who won 81 caps for England, criticised Southgate for his handling of the incident in a lengthy post on Facebook and questioned why the matter was not dealt with internally. Sterling has been routinely praised for not only his performances on the pitch, but his conduct away from it and the manner in which he has addressed issues such as racism.Now, Ferdinand feels Sterling has been hung out to dry and open to ‘keyboard haters’.“Now Raheem is left to defend himself from all of the haters that had their keyboards turned off due to him becoming a very worthy ambassador for the English game, and rightly so,” Ferdinand added.“If this was a terrible incident then I would be all for public shaming and discipline. But for this ‘throat grab’ that we are TOLD it’s for I can’t understand it.

Come international week, it’s meet up time between Sterling and Gomez. Sterling was still upset with Gomez about the result on Sunday and their little pushing/words said during the game.“So he has obviously gone into the England camp heated and gone for Gomez, in doing so grabbed Gomez by the throat. Obviously as a manager I’m sure having a harmonious squad is the best scenario – handshakes and hugs on sight, not confrontations. But let’s be honest now this kind of stuff isn’t uncommon in squads full of testosterone.“In the various squads I have been a part of I have seen players get punched in the face, ribs broken, nose busted, head kicked like a football…..a throat grab was the equivalent of the intricate handshake embraces that are all too familiar today!” Facebook | @RioFerdinandOfficial Ferdinand, in a lengthy post, believes England manager Southgate has handled the situation badly Sterling and Gomez clashed during Sunday’s match and the former attempted to renew the bust-up on Monday Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand believes England manager Gareth Southgate has handled the Raheem Sterling – Joe Gomez incident poorly.Sterling, the Man City star, has been dropped by Southgate for the Three Lions’ next fixture against Montenegro in a Euro 2020 qualifier on Thursday, LIVE on talkSPORT, after an altercation with the Liverpool defender at St George’s Park on Monday. Michael Gray says keeping Raheem Sterling with the England squad if he won’t play is wrongGomez is understood to have accepted an attempt by Sterling to put the incident behind them, but former Sunderland defender Micky Gray believes the Man City star should have been sent home.“If you’re going to punish him then you don’t play him Thursday or Sunday,” he told talkSPORT. “You should send him home so he’s not part of the squad.“Then he’s got four or five days to himself to think, ‘what did I say, should I have done that, was it the wrong approach, what will Gareth Southgate think of me, what will the rest of my team-mates think of me?’ All those things go through your mind.”last_img read more

It’s a beautiful melancholic ballad, but I also adored when Donald Glover used ‘Coronus, The Terminator’ by Flying Lotus for the TV show Atlanta on FX. Fly Lo is one of my favourite producers-composers. I had no idea he made this track and it was magnetic to see it juxtaposed in the scene! What a moment.” – TiKATiKA is an artist, actor, DJ, cultural producer, activist and advocate for the empowerment of female artists and creators. Her love and passion for culture and music contributed to her two EPs, and she has opened for major R&B heavyweights like John Legend and Nao. Complex Magazine listed TiKA as “one of the most prolific creatives in Toronto.” She has had song placements on CBC’s Diggstown and Kim’s Convenience, and her music has also been placed in the short films, TONY, directed by Grace Glowicki, and Five Dollars, directed by Reza Dayha. An established music ambassador and creator, TiKA’s image and sound as both a new artist and producer gracefully provides what this generation has been missing musically. Login/Register With: “The score from Netflix’s series,Flowers, is one of my favourite pieces of music in a quite a long time.
