Sterling slammed for tired claims as Liverpool star parties till 3am

Liverpool attacker Raheem Sterling joined Arsenal stars Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on a night out.

Raheem Sterling has come under-fire by tomorrow's tabloids as The Sun claim the Liverpool star was involved in a late night party - just 24 hours after allegedly claiming he was too tired to start an England international match.

England triumphed by a 1-0 score over Estonia, but Roy Hodgson did not start Sterling.

The fact that he revealed to the press his decision to not field the youngster from the start was because Raheem himself said he was too tired, sparked controversy across the media as fans and the football industry alike appeared polarised by the issue.

Rest from fatigue and injury is essential in football in order to avoid further muscular complications, yet some pundits lambasted the idea that a professional athlete could suffer from tiredness.

Sterling, though, may not have helped his cause if The Sun's latest revelation is true.

"England's Raheem Sterling partied until 3am at a nightclub - 24 hours after he was too tired to play for his country," wrote The Sun on their front-page column in tomorrow's paper.

"The Liverpool ace was at the London club with pals Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain [both Arsenal]."
