PHOTO: Chelsea fan swears at Raheem Sterling as he scores winning penalty in League Cup final

City star spots rude gesture in pic of winning kick.


Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling spotted a Chelsea fan swearing at him in a picture of his winning penalty in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final.

His emphatic spot kick ensured a 4-3 triumph in the shoot-out following a 0-0 draw at Wembley – and he later made an amusing discovery in a photo of the moment.


The England forward zoomed in on one man in particular who was aiming a V-sign in his direction and he shared an image of the rude gesture with his Twitter followers.

“Lmao he knew,” said Sterling in the accompany tweet, seemingly in acknowledgement that this particular V didn’t stand for ‘victory’.
