Liverpool defender Gomez still upset despite Sterling apology

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is reportedly still upset with the attitude of Raheem Sterling after their bust-up at England training yesterday.

Sterling has been dumped from England's starting XI for the Euros qualifier with Montenegro for his behaviour.

The Mirror says the feud between Sterling and Gomez started during Liverpool's win at Anfield which sent them nine points clear of chief title rivals City.

When the players reported for duty at St George's Park, Sterling is understood to have tried to provoke a reaction from Gomez, with witnesses saying they heard him ask the Liverpool defender whether he was “still the big man."

Gomez kept his cool and resisted getting involved but was left fuming by the row and was shocked that Sterling would react in such a way.

It is believed Gomez is still angry but England coach Gareth Southgate will be hoping his action has defused the row.

Sterling is still with the squad and could play against Kosovo on Sunday.
