BEST TACTICIAN EVER
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge reckons the Brendan Rodgers best tactician he has never played under in his budding career. Sturridge has been in brilliant form since joining Liverpool in a £ 12 million deal from Chelsea.
After more than 12 months at Merseyside, he seems to have settled brilliantly at the club. He is currently competing along with Luis Suarez for the Golden Boot award after having scored 20 goals compared to Suarez’ 29 this season. Both these players have been able to strike a remarkable partnership, which has seen them plunder most of the goals scored by Liverpool this season.
It is already turning out to be a remarkable campaign, but the club have the opportunity to make it even better with the Premier League title. It would be the first of Liverpool’s Premier League era, although the club were hugely successful back in the old days. Sturridge undoubtedly has a major role to play if Liverpool win this title. However, he has laid the praise on manager Rodgers, who he thinks has been able to adapt to the team to every situation. Liverpool had conceded a lot of goals this season, but the manager has always found a tactic to get the club back into the game and win.
It is because of this reason Sturridge regards Rodgers as a great tactician despite not having won major trophies.
"Tactically, he's the best [manager] I have worked with. From a man-management point of view, he's always pushing to get the best out of me. He is always trying to get the most out of me and reach my limits. He's done a lot for me and hopefully I can pay him back with some good performances," said the 24-year-old, who also said that the move to Liverpool is the best thing that happened to his career.
