The Sunday Telegraph reports Raheem Sterling was allegedly racially abused and attacked at Manchester City’s training ground on Saturday.
The paper describes how Sterling arrived at Etihad Campus to prepare for the 4-1 win over Tottenham only to be, “kicked and branded a 'n-----' by a man who appeared to be waiting for the 23-year-old at the players’ entrance.”
The Telegraph says the incident was captured on CCTV but it is as yet unclear whether it has been reported to police.
The report from James Ducker continued:
"Sterling had pulled into the entrance in his car as he arrived for City’s pre-match preparations, at which point he is believed to have been confronted by the man hurling a barrage of abuse at him. Telegraph Sport understands that Sterling got out of his car to ask what the problem was only for the man to react by reputedly kicking the City player in the leg."
Sterling scored twice in the 4-1 demolition of Tottenham as City made it 17 wins and one draw in the Premier League this season.
