If you are a footballer, then you know collecting and swapping shirts at the end of a match is customary.
However, it adds a lot of passion and fan following amongst players as well when you have the chance to swap shirts with your legends. That is exactly what Raheem Sterling is after.
The English international who is currently one of the best players in the Premier League recently bought a house in Jamaica. Sterling plans to decorate a wall in the house with the most famous and loved footballers’ jerseys.
He has already planned to hang up a couple of shirts of on his wall of Manchester City legend David Silva. Next up for him will be Lionel Messi, if he gets his way!
“I am a shirt collector but I don’t put any shirts on my wall as of yet,” Sterling told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I don’t like people coming into my house and knowing I am a football player. I like to keep my house family orientated.
“But for sure when I do finish football and settle somewhere I’ll have all the shirts – hopefully many shirts to choose from – and pick my favourites that I played against and do a room of trophies and football shirts.
“There’s only one I really want and that’s a Messi shirt – when we played Barcelona I got a Neymar shirt, I think that’s the first shirt I ever asked for.”
Well we really cant blame Raheem, we want a Messi shirt too, please.
