Man City midfielder Sterling: So can I trust you?

Manchester City midfielder Raheem Sterling feels he's been poorly portrayed in the media.

Sterling insists he's not about 'bling' off the pitch.

He wrote for the Players' Tribune: “So can I trust you? Can I tell you my story, and will you really listen? If you read certain papers, maybe you already think you know me. Maybe you think you know my story, and what I care about. But do you really?

"There's a perception in certain parts of the media that I love 'bling'.

"A few years ago, I would let it get to me. But now, as long as my mum and my sister and my kids don't have any stress, I'm good."
