Stoke forward calls out The Sun after photographers pester family at home

Saido Berahino has reached his breaking point.

Following several weeks of varied allegations about Berahino and his personal life, the Stoke City forward has had enough of paparazzi camping outside his house.

Berahino's on-pitch struggles have been heavily publicised, with the forward yet to score a goal for the Potters since his move over a year ago.

And while footballers are well aware of the fact that they open themselves up to criticism for their performances on the pitch, it does seem inappropriate to pry into anybody's private life, regardless of their profession.

On Thursday evening, things became too much for Berahinho, who was born in Burundi but was called up to the England senior squad by Roy Hodgson in 2014.


A member of the 24-year-old's family recorded footage of several photographers outside the player's home and Berahino posted the below to his Instagram.

"I’ve stayed silent for a long time but I’ve reached my breaking point," Berahino wrote.

"These guys have been to my house for three straight days for what.

"Like who am I for them to be so interested in... I’m a nobody! What I do in my private life has nothing to do with anyone but my family.

"@thesun this unacceptable and we all know why they keep trying to drag me to the ground.

"When GOD is for me no weapon can hold me!! Bless my sister, she had to deal with them for hours!!"
