Manchester City's Raheem Sterling to launch foundation for disadvantaged children

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling is believed to be in the process of launching a foundation that will be helping disadvantaged young people. 

Sterling revealed that he wanted to create something outstanding for the people at the organisation which would predominantly focus on social mobility.

The 25-year-old's charity would also aid those supported by Manchester United's Marcus Rashford's food poverty activism.

In an interview with the Sunday Times magazine, Sterling said: “That’s me finished with the ‘what can happen, what should happen’. Now I’m trying to put into place stuff I can do myself.

“Stuff to give young people in the same circumstances I was in another shot. If there is a university they want to go to, football equipment they need, other things … I want to be a helping hand.”

“It comes down to, OK, I come from northwest London, I move out of my area – what good is it if I take all I have made in life, my success and just build a big house somewhere? I’m happy, cool, but that’s not who I am.”
