Liverpool’s star youngster isn’t helping himself out, is he?

Raheem Sterling, 20, has been pictured dancing on a yacht off the coast of the Balearic party island of Ibiza with a balloon in hand and photos and videos released by the Sun newspaper in the UK appear to show the England international inhaling nitrous oxide.

In case you forgot, Sterling had his wrists slapped by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers back in April when another video of Sterling inhaling the legal high known as “hippy crack” emerged.

Although not illegal, nitrous oxide has many harmful side effects and the substance can be fatal.

Below is a photo of Sterling reportedly getting ready to inhale nitrous oxide as the Liverpool winger is currently on his summer break following his two starts for England last week against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia.

Sterling has been the subject of a reported $60 million bid by Manchester City earlier this week and is keen to move on from Liverpool after turning down a $150,000 a week contract offer in the spring.

Behavior like this may not impress potential new clubs or his current employers though.
