Paul Pogba Says Raheem Sterling Is Not Getting The Respect He Deserves

Paul Pogba believes Raheem Sterling is treated differently by the media and his achievements on the pitch are neglected.

Manchester City and England winger Sterling accused newspapers of fuelling racism last year.

His Instagram post showed a headline referring to Tosin Adarabioyo buying a house for £2.25m "despite having never started a Premier League match". It was posted alongside an article describing how Phil Foden had bought "a £2m home for his mum" and "set up a future".

It followed alleged racial abuse of Sterling, 24, by a fan at Stamford Bridge in Manchester City's defeat at Chelsea last December.

"Sometimes it happens," Pogba told Sky, when asked if he feels the media treat him, or Sterling, differently because of the colour of his skin.

Manchester City are still on course for an unprecedented quadruple this season and Sterling has already scored 21 goals in all competitions.

"I think Raheem Sterling, with all the stats from last year and everything he's done - nobody talks about it like we should," he said.
