Raheem Sterling transferred from Liverpool to Manchester City Football Club for £49 million. Still only 20 years old, he has been capped 16 times for England and is now the most expensive English player ever...
Born in Jamaica, Sterling moved to London at the age of seven and began his career at Queens Park Rangers before signing for Liverpool in 2010. In July 2015, following a lengthy dispute over a new contract, he was signed by Manchester City in a transfer potentially worth £49 million, the highest transfer for an English player.
And one thing is for sure – Sterling listens to his mother! "My Mum rules my life – she's a nightmare at times, but I love her and she’s the main person in my life," he said. "At first she wouldn’t come to the games, but then she saw how much I liked it and really got into it. Now she thinks she’s Jose Mourinho!"
“I get told off all the time. She tells me off for being lazy, for not helping around the house — but I’m becoming better at that. It’s hard work. She gives me stick but I do my bit.”
Sterling was born and bred in Maverley, Kingston, Jamaica. Three years ago, his mother suggested that he should make meaningful contributions to his community. Now, he has started charity work in that area.
“When I go to Jamaica, I contribute to two primary schools in my area, for the whole school’s school fees and their lunch money for the year,” Sterling said. He also hosts football competitions and summer schemes for youngsters. Bless!
The United Kingdom is set to implement a new immigration policy that will see foreign students leave the country after completion of their studies, Daily Mail reports.
Foreign students are to be banned from working in Britain under a fresh crackdown on immigration ordered by Home Secretary Theresa May.
Ministers say the new rules, which will apply to all those from outside the European Union, will stop colleges being used as a ‘back door to a British work visa’.
Under the new rules, non-EU students will be denied the right to work while in the UK and will not be able to apply for a visa extension when their course finishes.
Students will have to leave the country before applying to return under a work visa.
