Raheem Sterling open up after attack and boos from Chelsea fans

Raheem Sterling has reached out to Chelsea fans following his performance against Leicester City. Chelsea advanced to the FA Cup semi-finals on Sunday, although Sterling had a challenging day on the field.

In the first half, the Chelsea forward earned a penalty and decided to take the kick himself, stepping ahead of the usual penalty taker, Cole Palmer. The 29-year-old saw his shot easily saved by Leicester’s goalkeeper Jakub Stolarczyk.

The England forward also squandered a clear chance later in the first half but contributed to creating Palmer’s goal, helping Chelsea to a 2-0 lead before halftime.

However, as Chelsea lost their lead in the second half, Raheem Sterling faced criticism for sending a free-kick well over the bar from just outside the area.

The Chelsea crowd called for Mauricio Pochettino to substitute him, leading to his replacement amidst a mixed reaction of clapping and jeers from the fans.

Addressing Chelsea fans on social media, Raheem Sterling wrote: “Wembley Bound. To all the Chelsea fans, apologies for the penalty miss.

“I’ll be back 10x times stronger to help the team win and continue to keep fighting for the badge every single day. Let’s go Blues.”
