It was during last season in April that the club’s co-owner had had enough and wanted to put his thoughts across to the players.

TalkSPORT have claimed that after the 2-1 defeat to Brighton under Frank Lampard, Boehly burst into the club’s dressing room.

The report suggests that the American labelled the six-game winless run as “embarrassing”.

Sterling, 29, was even told that despite being a world-class player, he was not delivering enough in his performances and as a leader.

However, the England international is said to have been “galvanised” by the incident.

The attacker believed that Boehly was trying to motivate the Chelsea team with his rallying call.

Sterling has improved his output this season and is already one goal away from matching his tally of five in the previous Premier League campaign.

He has also become a more reliable creator as he has matched his three assists from last term.

This weekend, Sterling returns to his previous club, Manchester City.

Chelsea face the reigning champions at the Etihad Stadium as they look to climb up to 7th in the table.

He was praised by former manager Pep Guardiola in the build-up to the clash for his “massive contribution” during his time at the Citizens.

The Spaniard said: “Unbelievable. He was there, especially in the first season, we could not think about what he would achieve with us. 

“He was an incredibly important player with us.

“His contribution was massive.  His speed, his movements, he was a great player.”

Sterling is committed to Chelsea and has proved it recently as he reportedly rejected a massive offer to move to Saudi Arabia.
