Sterling earned widespread praise last year for his fight against racism in the sport
Manchester City and England forward Raheem Sterling will set up a foundation to help disadvantaged young people in Britain, the 25-year old has told The Sunday Times.
The report said Sterling is likely to donate a seven-figure sum to the cause, which also aims to help families similar to those benefiting from Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford’s free school meals campaign.
Sterling earned widespread praise last year for his fight against racism in the sport and for using his platform to call for more action to be taken.
The forward added that details of the foundation were still being finalized.
