Raheem Sterling of Chelsea has returned to London from the England World Cup squad in Qatar after armed intruders broke into his home while his family was inside.

On the morning of Sunday’s game against Senegal, the 27-year-old spoke with manager Gareth Southgate after learning that his Surrey home had been broken into on Saturday evening, December 3.

Southgate confirmed after England’s victory that Sterling has been released and will travel to London, with no return date set, but sources have told ESPN that the Chelsea winger is hopeful of playing some further part in the tournament once he has spent time with his family.

Sterling’s family and close friends, including his girlfriend, Paige, and two of his children, are believed to be in Qatar, while his mother is believed to be in London.

Sterling was “dealing with a family matter,” according to the FA, and Southgate stated after the game:

Raheem Sterling Name A PL Side That Have Caught His Eye, Claiming Many Teams Want To Play Like Them

“According to our statement, Raheem is returning to England to deal with a family matter. We must give him time to try to resolve this issue or be present for his family. At this point, that is the most important thing. So we’re going to give him some breathing room.

It had no bearing on team selection. This morning, I spent a lot of time with Raheem. You have days when things happen and you have to deal with them. He’s on his way home, and we’re obviously concerned about him having his space and privacy respected, so we’re not going to go into too much detail.

“Of course, it’s not ideal for the team ahead of a big game, but it’s insignificant.” In those moments, the individual is more important than the group. I had to handle the situation first, and then pass it on to others to handle this afternoon in order to get him home.

“Our thoughts are with him and his family,” England captain Kane said of Sterling. It’s a private matter, but seeing one of your teammates or friends go through something like that is never easy.

“We’ll have to take each day as it comes.” I’m confident Raheem will consult with his manager and make the best decision for himself and his family. That is the most important aspect. We wish him the best and hope to see him as soon as possible.
