Raheem Sterling and a host of footballers have been pictured in attendance at the clothing range launch party of Manchester United star Jesse Lingard on Sunday night.
The Manchester City winger was pictured arriving at the Peter Street Kitchen venue alongside the likes of Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.
Following United’s comfortable 4-1 win over Fulham on Saturday, Lingard rounded off the perfect weekend by launching a new clothing line from his fashion label JLingz.
Lingard was decked out in a velvet jacket and jazzy trousers with a personalised JLingz necklace and glasses to complete the outfit.
Rashford too wore round spectacles and a necklace to accompany his all black attire. Luke Shaw, meanwhile, offered a more daring approach with a jacket more commonly seen in outer space.
Pogba, left on the bench by manager Jose Mourinho on Saturday, did not hesitate to take a swipe at his colleague’s outfit on Instagram.
The Frenchman shared a clip of him relaxing with Victor Lindelof, Diego Dalot and Nemanja Matic before turning the focus on to Shaw.
He wrote: ‘Woooah Luke where you going’, with a number of space emojis while turning the camera towards the England international.
Sterling’s attendance at the event comes hours after he informed police that he was aware of being racially abused in City’s 2-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
The 24-year-old was interviewed by members of the Metropolitan Police on Sunday, who travelled north as part of their investigation into an incident during the game.
The England star confirmed he had heard racist insults and other foul language as he went to collect a ball for a corner near the Matthew Harding Stand.
Footage began circulating on social media soon after the game that appeared to show a man in a blue top – who is believed to be known to Chelsea and the police – calling Sterling a ‘f****** black c***’.
Chelsea have told Manchester City the fan will be permanently banned from Stamford Bridge if firm evidence of racist abuse is provided. There has been speculation the word used may have been ‘Manc’ and not ‘black’.
Sunday’s business activities would have been a satisfying end to Lingard’s last couple of days. He played in Manchester Unite’s 4-1 thumping of Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.
Rashford, who assisted twice and scored once, was alongside Lingard for the launch event earlier on Sunday. The pair signed merchandise for those who queued up to get their hands on the latest range.
Lingard first launched JLingz five months ago following England’s win over Colombia on penalties at the World Cup in Russia.
