Relying On Sturridge Again Is A Big Mistake


It is a real worry for Liverpool and their supporters that their manager Brendan Rodgers is once again relying on striker Daniel Sturridge to produce the goals needed for the club to have a successful season.

After the loss of Luis Suarez the Reds’ boss failed to replace the brilliant Uruguayan and although he signed the likes of Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli he was depending on Sturridge staying fit and the result was that he hardly played at all last season with lengthy injury problems.

“Players like that make the difference,” said the Reds boss. “We haven’t scored three goals since he last started a game.

“He gives you a big opportunity to win games and compete at the top end of the table.

“He is a fantastic talent and now the job is hopefully he can stay fit.”

Rodgers is obviously delighted to have Sturridge back and scoring goals but if he is relying on the England striker staying fit then Liverpool supporters won’t be building their hopes up with his injury record.

Rodgers has spent plenty of money on strikers like Benteke, Ings and Origi but if he is still depending on Sturridge and not convinced with his signings then it is another example of his poor management.

We all hope Sturridge stays fit because he is a quality striker but Rodgers is making a big mistake relying on his fitness once again.

    A manager and his team Rely upon his/their goalkeeper to keep the starting score of 0-0 intact throughout, the same manager and team Rely on their defence to defend, their midfield to tidy up, to make the play and shelter their defence amongst other things, the same manager and team Rely upon their attacking players and strikers to attack and score the goals requisite for success in the game. So Rely upon Sturridge to do his job scoring goals ?? Yes no doubt, if he is not injured there is no problem to solve, if he became injured again it’s time to rely upon the player taking his place…Y.N.W.A

    So exactly what would want him to do given that a fit Sturridge as a Liverpool player must play and not just play but play to score goal which is his task? A times fans and writers make criticism that bothers on foolishness and disrespect.
