Sterling filmed 'taking legal high'
By Charlie Scott for the Daily Mail. Raheem Sterling is at the centre of a second drugs controversy after the Liverpool forward was videoed passing out after inhaling nitrous oxide.
In the footage Sterling is seen sucking on an orange balloon then laughing and giggling before he asks one of his friends to give him another hit. Raheem Sterling has been filmed apparently inhaling nitrous oxide - also known as 'hippy crack'.
The video shows him smiling and breathing in gas from a balloon before apparently passing out. When the camera pans back to the year-old, he is either unconscious or has fallen asleep. It is claimed that the video, obtained by The Sun , was taken at his home in Southport in the days before a game. Nitrous oxide starves the brain of oxygen and makes users feel light-headed and dizzy. Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling can be seen pictured on social media whilst smoking a shisha pipe.
The gas is normally bought in pressured canisters, commonly transferred to a container, e. The effects of nitrous oxide vary depending on how much has been inhaled but they include: This occurs when the available oxygen for breathing is effectively pushed out by the nitrous oxide. A Liverpool spokesman said: Any subsequent action will be taken internally. He refused to comment on the story but did not deny that it was his client. They were widely applauded. Asked if he will be reminding Sterling of his responsibilities, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said: Sportsmail columnist and former Liverpool captain Jamie Carragher said: Players' union chief Bobby Barnes called for understanding after Sterling 'made a mistake'.
Barnes, deputy chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association and European president of the international players' union FIFPro, said people should not be too hard on Sterling. It does send a message to young people that if it's good enough for footballers then it's good enough for them and that is not desirable. Many of us look back at things we have done in our teens and early 20s and wish we hadn't done them. I am sure this will be a minor blip on his path to a fantastic career.
Let's not be too hard on the boy. He is under a lot of pressure and people think because he has a lot of talent he's also supposed to have diplomacy and wisdom. Official figures show , years olds took it last year. Brendan Rodgers has backed his wayward star but contract stand-off has created tension at Liverpool.
It has been the cause of 17 deaths since Drugs charity Re-Solv has called on the 'role model' player to condemn the use of the drug to deter young supporters from taking risks with their health.
The anti-drugs organisation's spokesman, Stephen Ream, told MailOnline: He is a big role model and we hate to see this kind of stuff from someone of his status.
There are risks and we would urge anyone tempted to take it not to do so. Tottenham defender Kyle Walker was pictured inhaling a balloon in , while last year Saido Berahino was pictured doing it at the wheel of his Range Rover. In February, Jack Wilshere faced criticism after he was pictured with a shisha pipe on a night out while recovering from ankle surgery. But the Arsenal star, who has previously been pictured smoking cigarettes, was defended by England manager Roy Hodgson who said he'd tried the Middle Eastern pipe himself and did not think it was a problem.
