Liverpool winger Sterling admits Mum his toughest critic

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling admits Mum is his biggest critic.

The England and Liverpool winger claims Nadine acts like she's the 'Special One', telling him where he is going wrong on the pitch.

"My mum thinks she knows her football," said the 19-year-old.

"She thinks she's Jose Mourinho. She tries to have too much of a say sometimes - but I always listen.

"I try to listen to her, because most of what she says is right.

"She'll certainly tell me when I'm not doing something right. There's been a few clashes with her."
