Fair play to Raheem Sterling.

The Manchester City winger might not be the most popular man in football after his move from Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium, but at least he’s retained a sense of humour.

Sterling posed for a photo with Fabian Delph—who also joined the Citizens in the summer transfer window—and posted it on Instagram with a message that includes two snakes. The pair are on a plane flying to San Marino for England’s Euro 2016 qualifier.

Sterling turned down a £100,000-a-week contract at Anfield in a very public way last season, per BBC Sport, whilst Delph pledged his allegiance to Aston Villa before making his move to the Premier League title challengers less than a week later.

Where’s Samuel L. Jackson when you need him?
