Liverpool starlet Sterling: Mum keeps me grounded

Liverpool star Raheem Sterling admits his Mum keeps his feet on the ground.

Sterling is still expected to do his household chores.

"My mum and my family stop me getting carried away with it all," Sterling told "They are a big help. My mum has moved up from London.

"She talks to me about the games and training, making sure that everything is going smoothly. If I score or make an assist she'll tell me that I need to keep doing it.

"I get told off all the time. She tells me off for being lazy, for not helping around the house - but I'm becoming better at that. She wants me to brush the stairs and help out in the kitchen - it's hard work.

"She gives me stick but I do my bit. I cleaned the living room a couple of days ago."
