Jordan Henderson Rang Both Raheem Sterling And Joe Gomez To Play Peacemaker

Jordan Henderson Rang Both Raheem Sterling And Joe Gomez To Play Peacemaker

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson brought the peace between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez, despite the fact that he isn't yet with the England squad.

Sterling and Gomez clashed in an incident towards the end of the Premier League game between Manchester City and Liverpool at the weekend.

Though that incident was thought to have been put behind them Sterling caused another incident at St George's Park on Monday, resulting in him being dropped for the England game on Thursday.

According to the Mirror, the two men have since made up but according to the Mirror not without Henderson's involvement. The Reds' captain rang both men and encouraged them to meet and shake hands.

Sterling apologised to both Gomes and the rest of the team after the call from the England and Liverpool midfield and both incidents are now behind the two rivals.

The 24-year-old will now miss the Three Lions penultimate Euro 2020 qualifier at Wembley on Thursday, when they take on Montenegro.

Should Gareth Southgate's team win the game then they will qualify for the tournament next summer, which is being player all around the continent.

Gareth Southgate Opens Up On ‘Long Chat’ With Jurgen Klopp After Joe Gomez Injury

The former Liverpool winger isn't the only player missing the game with Henderson having been suspended after picking up too many yellow cards.

That's why the former Sunderland player had to intervene over the phone as he isn't joining up with the rest of the squad until Wednesday, though he and Sterling will be expected to return to the starting XI against Kosovo on Sunday.

The Mirror also report that several England players aren't happy with how the incident has been dealt with by Southgate, believing the forward shouldn't have been dropped.

Sterling is believed to have tried to grab the Liverpool defender after Gomez leaned over him in the St George's Park canteen and tried to shake his hand.

After removing himself from the building, Sterling returned and apologised and the players thought that would be enough, until Southgate called players for a meeting to reveal the player was being dropped.

It seems like a rare misstep from Southgate since taking over as England manager from Sam Allardyce.

Should Sterling have been dropped?
