Daniel Sturridge’s fitness issues has been his own worst enemy. The one thing is for sure, he is taking it quiet well as a professional footballer, playing above constant criticism.
Being laid off so many time in your career, could count as a major problem (normally the case for any athlete). Or, you could be so use to it and use it as a tool to succeed.
Daniel Sturridge, for as long as I can remember, has always had an impact on a game when returning from one of his many injuries.
Off the top of my head, a couple of seasons ago, Sturridge returned for a West Ham fixture. He was so emphatic, he almost came back to action with a hat-trick of goals to the game.
Coming off the bench in his first Liverpool and Man United clash on Anfield soil, he scored once introduced.
It was all Daniel Sturridge in the Merseyside derby. Yes he didn’t score the goal in the embers, but he was the man who impacted the game, which lead to the only goal.
Few nights ago wasn’t any different, as he came off the bench and in 56 seconds of being introduced into the game. He pounced on a silly defensive error, scoring his first premier league goal for the season.
