Liverpool Balls: Raheem Sterling is heckled and we loved it
Raheem Sterling was heckled yesterday. As Liverpool FC paraded their new kit, the 20-year-old was singled out for treament by one Liverpool fan. As Sterling took the stage to enthuse about the outfit, a voice shouted:
“Make sure we see you in it next season.”
Others cheered. Sterling, quick as a flash, said nothing.
Away from the rarified environs of a BBC studio, the inside of an hermetically sealed supercar and unable to dodge catcalls by swaddling his head between two massive headphones as he walks from the team bus, this was Sterling exposed.
And we loved it.
Heckling is pretty much the only occassion when the masses get to address their leaders and idols.
