Daniel Sturridge is one of the those players that is consistently being highly rated and considered to be as someone who has everything needed to excel in the world of football but as time passes by, there has not been a season where he has truly made an impact and this start of the 2016-17 season of the Premier League is no different as the English attacker has not scored a single goal in any of the 6 league matches that he has appeared in so far.
According to the former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs, one of the main reasons of why Daniel Sturridge is going through such a hard time in scoring consistently goals and in making any kind of memorable performances is because the English player is making too many mistakes as Ryan Giggs said:
“I played with Sturridge at the Olympics. He has everything. He’s got a good touch, good finisher, he’s quick, and he can run the channels but to be a top, top player… decision-making.You have to make the right decisions. You have to make the right decisions more often than you make bad decisions. Today there were just too many bad decisions.”
That was the statement released by Ryan Giggs on October 8th as he talked about Daniel Sturridge following England’s 2-0 triumph over Malta in which Sturridge scored a goal.
It seems like Sturridge has only been able to score goals at the international stage in recent times. Things with Liverpool are a completely different story as he has been struggling to score goals and has been dropped to the sidelines on a more regular basis.
This lack of goals is a serious problem for Daniel Sturridge as there are other players in the squad of JurgenKlopp that have been stepping it up and scoring goals, this is the case of James Milner who has scored 4 goals in 6 matches while Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho have all scored 3 goals so far.
There is a chance that Sturridge might start getting even more time on the sidelines if he continues to struggle while some of his other teammates begin take up the offensive role of Liverpool, there might even be a chance of him making his way out of Anfield road in the near future.
