Rio Ferdinand unhappy with Daniel Sturridge

Rio Ferdinand did not like the fact that Daniel Sturridge talked up his overall goal scoring rate for Liverpool in his latest interview and declared himself the no. 1 attacker of the Reds on the basis of that.

It’s about what your form is at that stage and if Sturridge has to prove that he is indeed the best bet of Jurgen Klopp in the frontline, he can do it only by showing form and not by showing his numbers.

Coach Jurgen Klopp is keen on giving the player an opportunity to stay on as the first choice forward and even admires the player but the coach is one for whom assumptions can’t be made.

Sturridge became the major hero at the club since Luiz Suarez left the club and moved to Barcelona. The former Blues forward was most impressive when the club was almost sure to lift the Premier League in the 2013/2014 season. He scored 24 goals in 33 games but has now lost his most revered spot to Philippe Coutinho in the past two seasons. With the performance Coutinho put up and other players set to join the team, Sturridge has to step up to remain the top man in front.
