Sturridge excited by Liverpool future
New Liverpool signing Daniel Sturridge has revealed that he is looking forward to a long a successful spell at the club.
He put pen to paper yesterday (Wednesday) and believes that he will enjoy a long and successful period at the club:
“I am humbled and happy to be here,” he told the club’s official website.
“Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time – and I also see myself here for a long time. I’ve not signed here to play for a couple of years and then move on.
“I’ve signed to be here for as long as possible. It’s a humongous club – for me, one of the biggest in the world – and to have the fans and world-class players we have here is amazing.”
Sturridge spent three-and-a-half years with Chelsea, making over 50 first-team appearances.
Initially he struggled to break into the first-tem at Stamford Bridge, but, following a successful loan spell with Bolton, he became a key fixture under Andre Villas-Boas.
The Portuguese coach’s dismissal saw Sturridge’s first-team opportunities limited, although injury has had a bearing on his chances this term.
