“We have all discussed it as a team, we have had a little talk with each other, and make sure everything is OK. We just want to move on as a team and focus on the game on Thursday.
“I wasn’t really there, I didn’t see anything. I don’t even know what happened, I just heard about it.
“They all had a discussion, [and are] moving on as a team. And now we are just focusing on the game on Thursday.”
The Chelsea star then spoke about the influence that Sterling had on him and how he continues to be an inspiration.
“Raheem’s a very nice guy, he’s very encouraging, very positive about everything he does.
“When I first came in [to the squad], I didn’t expect him to be so nice. Of course he is a nice person but when you see somebody always welcoming you, just talking to you, giving you advice on how he plays and just being around you a lot it makes you feel so welcome in the team. All the other boys around were just being positive making sure you’re doing well, and everyone’s going good.
“Someone like Raheem is like an idol to me. The position he plays, and what he’s doing for club and country, is an amazing thing, which I will try to replicate myself. It is an amazing feeling to have someone like him doing what he’s doing and being around you every time. I want to keep learning off what he does. He is a nice person to be around, very positive.”
