Raheem Sterling has mocked Piers Morgan on Twitter by reminding him of something he said about the Manchester City star in 2015. At the time, Sterling was on the verge of completing a £49million transfer from Liverpool to the Etihad.
In July 2015, just days before Sterling put pen to paper with City, Morgan tweeted: “If Raheem Sterling’s worth £49million then I’m an Aardvark.”
Five years on and Morgan’s tweet hasn’t exactly aged well, considering Sterling is arguably the most valuable player in the Premier League and valued at close to £160million by the CIES Football Observatory.
Responding to the tweet this Tuesday, Sterling posted three laughing emojis alongside the comment: “Now this is even funnier Piers.”

Backtracking, Morgan replied: “Haha, touche! I meant you were worth a lot MORE than £49million, Raheem… obviously.”
He later shared an image of an aardvark, with the comment: “Hi mate.”
