Manchester United fan abused after being mistaken for Man City bound star Raheem Sterling – Manchester Evening News
A Manchester United fan has been bombarded with death threats and abuse after being mistaken for soon-to-be City star Raheem Sterling.
The England youngster is on the verge of joining the Blues after the m88 clubs last night agreed a fee worth around ?49 million for the 20 year-old.
And incensed Liverpool fans began sending a barrage of calls and text and messages after a phone number, which was claimed to be to Sterling’s, was posted online.
However, the number actually belonged to 17-year-old trainee car mechanic Joe Adams.
Joe Adams has received hundreds of calls and texts
And the United fan from Port Talbot in South Wales has so far received around 500 calls and 300 threatening and abusive texts and WhatsApp messages.
In one he was told by a fan of the Anfield club: “Kill yourself.”
Whilst another of the X-rated messages said: “You better not be round my end soon mate or I’ll put a f****** hole in your s*** f****** quiff.”
Joe told The Sun: “When I realised what it was all about I just found it a bit strange.”
His father, James, claimed some of the messages also contained racist content.
Meanwhile, police are looking into 3,200 texts sent to Sterling after his actual phone number was posted online last week.
