Sturridge (Slightly) Slags Off City

Sturridge (Slightly) Slags Off City


Article by Blue Lad Scragg.

Former Manchester City striker Daniel Sturridge has spoken for the first time about his move to Chelsea. He also revealed an ambition to win trophies and to play in the Champions League, something he thought he couldn't do at City.

The fee is set to be decided by a tribunal but there was no denying Sturridge's confidence when he was officially unveiled as a Chelsea player at their training ground.

Sturridge told the media...

'My main motivation was to play in the Champions League. I am very ambitious and want to push myself to the highest level and play with the best in he world. I believe I can achieve big things at Chelsea.'

'I am very young and I will be very patient because there are world-class players here. I am not going to get too upset if I am not playing because I know it is a long season and a lot of games.'


I want to win trophies

'I want to win as many trophies as I can. I am not saying Man City have not got ambitions for the Champions League or for any competition but the main thing for me was to come to Chelsea to better me as a player.'

He continued...

'I will become a man here. The likes of John Terry will push me on to become a better player. Manchester City are a completely different club to Chelsea. I have signed for Chelsea and City are in the past. Myself and Mark Hughes didn't have any talks about me leaving City.'

Daniel finished off by saying...

'Hopefully as the season goes on I will get the opportunities and show the fans what abilities I have. Any player who is at a big club will believe they can push themselves to get into the England squad. Hopefully by coming here I can get an opportunity to get into the full England squad and push myself to be the best I can.'

Best of British Daniel, you are definitely going to need it.

Not the slightest bit interested in his comments. He no longer is our problem.

I saw the press conference on the BBC. Not even a whiff of a thank you to Manchester City for standing by me throughout serious injury or to the City fans support that helped push me towards my Premier League debut.

What did you expect JB, I think the lad expects to walk into Chelsea First team, I don't think he was even an Ancellotti choice and wont know anything about Sturridge as a player.

I accept that players move, it happens. I also accept that players, fans don't want to leave, move on to other places. I accept that these players can have their own reasons which will more than likely differ from my own. Additionally, I accept that Sturridge is a total and utter *****wit. Here endeth the lesson.

"I will become a man here. The likes of John Terry will push me on to become a better player." Oh, I'd laugh for a week if Terry joined us after that ungrateful mercenary said that.

Spot on Stu. Can there be a worse case of bad advice? Sturridge, if he watched City's FA Youth Cup win over Chelsea last year should know that Weasel Kenyon is after buying up as many young players worldwide academies in preparation for the demise of their old guard. Ancelotti will have never heard of him. I mean, FFS Mourinho never wanted SWP!
