Liverpool 'very supportive' of Raheem Sterling

I do have instructions to the effect that Mr Sterling will be pleading not guilty to this charge. He is aware of today's hearing and the club are very supportive.

Sterling charged with assault

Liverpool and England winger Raheem Sterling has been charged with assaulting a 27-year-old woman. The 18-year-old did not attend the hearing but his solicitor appeared on his behalf. He denies the allegation.
