New Chelsea marking Raheem Sterling has prevailed upon his new fanbase from the get-go
Real was marking signatures when given a Manchester City shirt
The forward stopped prior to declining to sign the shirt and moving onto others
The 27-year-old joined Chelsea from City for £50million only four days prior
New Chelsea forward Raheem Sterling has proactively prevailed upon the club’s fanbase subsequent to declining to sign a Manchester City shirt while on their pre-season visit through the States.
In another video, Sterling should be visible marking signatures and modeling for photographs with allies anxious to acquire a brief look at Chelsea’s star marking.
At the point when one observer introduced the England forward with a City shirt to sign, Sterling stopped momentarily prior to disregarding the piece of clothing and continuing on for more photographs.
Cheers could be heard from the Chelsea fans in participation – Sterling plainly satisfying the Blues allies with his dismissal only days after his move from City.
Timo Werner and Mason Mount were on the scoresheet and, despite a comical own goal from Reece James, the Blues got their tour off to the ideal start.
Sterling was the only player engaging with fans in the video, which now has nearly 90,000 views on TikTok and over one million views on Twitter.
Fans reacted to the video on Reddit, with some mocking Chelsea flop Romelu Lukaku, who expressed his desire to return to former club Inter Milan while still a Chelsea player last season.
His relationship with fans and the club deteriorated, and the Belgian did rejoin Inter on loan earlier this window.
One user commented:
‘Lukaku would have signed, put it on and kiss[ed] the badge’,
and received 17 upvotes for the gag.
Others questioned the motive and rules behind the exchange, with one user asking:
‘Why do people keep doing this to players that have just transferred? Is it just for the clicks the video will get?’
‘I’m not sure if players are allowed to sign merchandise that isn’t that of their employers.’
Chelsea will continue their tour when they face Charlotte on Thursday morning at the Bank of America Stadium.
