Football Association backs England striker Raheem Sterling over 'unacceptable' gun tattoo



The Football Association has defended England forward Raheem Sterling after his new M16 assault rifle tattoo was criticised by an anti-gun campaigner.
 
An FA spokesperson said: "We all support Raheem Sterling and acknowledge the honest and heartfelt account he gave via Instagram last night.
 
 
"He and the rest of the squad are focused solely on preparing for the forthcoming World Cup."


Earlier, the 23-year-old, who plays for Premier League champions Manchester City, posted a picture of himself training with his England teammates at St George's Park.


The tattoo of an assault rifle on his right calf was clearly visible.
