Henderson said to be the peace-maker in Sterling and Gomez bust-up

Posted by

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been described as the peace-maker between Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez.

The winger was dismissed from the England squad, following a bust up with the young Reds’ defender and it now seems Gomez sustained a scratch in the coming together.

Not the most fierce of injuries, of course, but it’s unacceptable for one team-mate to do that to another. That being said, Henderson tried his best to keep things cool.

The pair had a coming together during City’s 3-1 humbling at Anfield, in which Sterling was clearly irritated by beating out-muscled by Gomez in the final third.

Gomez is said to have approached Sterling at St James’, in the canteen, to shake his hand, but the City forward wasn’t interested in that and lashed out.

Despite the winger apologising to the Liverpool man, Gareth Southgate and the rest of the squad, Sterling has been dropped from the England squad for Thursday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.

It’s good that the national squad has leaders in it like Henderson who can help out with situations like this – I’m sure Southgate is thrilled to have players like him in it.
