Liverpool prospect, Jordon Ibe, has been dragged into Raheem Sterling’s legal high scandal after pictures of the duo allegedly sharing a shisha pipe emerged.
Reds boss, Brendan Rodgers, said that he would hold talks with Sterling after images of the England winger purportedly smoking a pipe and inhaling nitrous oxide from a balloon surfaced.
However, within hours of Rodgers’s statement, more photographs were published on the Daily Mail website, this time depicting Ibe and Sterling sharing a pipe during a night out in London.
Liverpool are yet to issue a statement addressing Ibe’s behaviour, but previously confirmed that they will not be investigating Sterling any further over the incident.
The club was keen to stress that the youngster has not committed a crime or breached Football Association regulations, although Rodgers condemned his actions as unprofessional.
Meanwhile, Liverpool chief executive, Ian Ayre, has said that he expects Sterling to remain at the club for a “long time”, but confirmed that contract talks have been placed on hold.
