Brendan Rodgers has declared that new signing Daniel “Studds” Sturridge will play as centre forward for Liverpool.
This might seem surprising considering the fine form of Luis Suarez with 15 goals in the Premier League already this Season.
“Daniel’s best position is as a central striker, and I think the best role for him will be straight through the middle, with his pace,” the manager explained.
“Where will Luis play then? He’ll play for the common good of the team.”
“But don’t tell me it’s a problem – it’s never a problem having good players.”
“Wherever Luis plays, he will make the same movements and find the space, because he is a world class player.”
Indeed, Suarez himself commented upon joining Liverpool, that he expected to be playing alongside Fernando Torres, until FT left for Chelsea.
So Suarez can play his usual roaming role up forward, in the box and cutting in from the wings as he loves to do.
Finally, he will have a player up top to help him.
