Expect Extraordinary




Footballers get a bit of stick nowadays for being arrogant and perhaps a little oblivious to the real world.

However, Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has taken that to a whole new level, having his back inked with a likeness of himself.

While the Germany international may just have been taking the phrase ‘the body is a temple’ a little too literally, his City teammate Raheem Sterling just had to point out Sane’s overindulgence in himself.

Responding to Sane’s Instagram story, Sterling wrote: “What a sh*t tatoo “my name is @LeroySane19 and I love myself”.”

While Sane has had to be patient so far this season, he impressed during a substitute cameo against Liverpool on Saturday, scoring twice as City swept the 10 men of Liverpool aside with a ruthless attacking display.

Sterling has also performed well, scoring twice in three Premier League appearances, but sat out the game against his former side after being sent off at Bournemouth.



As you may have heard, we announced a few months ago that Astoria Financial Corporation has agreed to merge with Sterling Bancorp, uniting two complementary organizations who share a similar passion for helping our clients succeed. This merger is expected to be completed in the next few weeks. We’re excited about the new opportunities now at hand – for you, your family, and your future.

Once the merger takes place, the Astoria Bank name will change to Sterling National Bank. You’ll see our new name at your local financial center and when you do your online and mobile banking. Rest assured, our merger won’t disrupt your banking services. You will keep the same accounts, account numbers, checks and cards. It’s business as usual as we usher in a new era of possibilities.

We invite you to explore this page to learn more. We thank you for your business and look forward to creating new ways to serve you better as Astoria and Sterling unite.

Expect Extraordinary.
