From The Telegraph:
"Sterling and Gomez clashed at the end of Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City, but had appeared to make peace by later embracing.
But Gomez was astonished when Sterling arrived at St George’s Park to meet up for England duty and immediately laid into him again and, according to witnesses, allegedly attempted to provoke a physical confrontation.
It is believed Sterling aimed jibes at Gomez, asking if he still thought he was the “big man” and got into the 22-year-old’s face looking for a reaction.
Some of those present were impressed with the way Gomez handled the situation by refusing to be goaded into retaliating physically and instead taking a step back.
Later realising his error, it is said that Sterling offered an apology to Gomez which was accepted and the pair now consider the fall-out to be finished. Gomez has not faced any punishment.
But that was not the end of the matter for Sterling, who will now sit out the Montenegro game and must wait to see if he is selected for the qualifier in Kosovo on Sunday.
The initial dispute between the two players at Anfield was triggered by Sterling’s attempt to take the ball off Gomez, who had been introduced as an 87th-minute substitute.
Sterling backed into Gomez and the defender responded by giving him a shove and towering over his smaller opponent. James Milner then had to drag Gomez away after Sterling deliberately pushed into his back with his shoulders after referee Michael Oliver had blown his whistle.
But there did not appear to be any lasting animosity as the two players later embraced at the end of the game and Gomez thought the matter was closed."
Sterling is lucky. Joe would have turfed him.
