Famous Brit of the Week #57 - Raheem Sterling
Today's assembly was presented by two of our year 5 pupils. Raheem Shaquille Sterling (born 8 December 1994) is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger and attacking midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the England national team. Born in Jamaica, Sterling moved to London at the age of five and began his career at Queens Park Rangers before signing for Liverpool in 2010. In July 2015, he was signed by Manchester City in a transfer worth £49 million, the highest transfer fee ever paid for an English player. He then went on to help Manchester City win back-to-back Premier League titles in the 2017–18 and 2018–19 seasons. Sterling made his senior debut for England in November 2012 after previously being capped by England youth teams at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels. He was chosen in England's squads for the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups and UEFA Euro 2016.
