We all know by Jamie Carragher isn’t one to mince his words, to be fair since the Danny Simpson saga he’s been on his best behaviour. Well except for clattering into Gary Neville, but we can forgive him for that.
The former Liverpool defender has revealed he has had an encounter with Daniel Sturridge while away in Australia. He told the Liverpool ECHO
“I’ve got a funny story about that, and I didn’t mind it actually I was happy about it.
“As soon as I got on the plane, I could see Sturridge wasn’t his normal self with me. And he pulled me in Australia after the game, or at half time when we’d come off.
Shit was about to hit the fan……
“He said â??why did you say they should sell me?’.
“I said â??ooh, fair enough!’ I thought â??I’m not having you putting me on the back foot’ so I went straight back and said â??well, what else can they do?!’
“He wasn’t too happy that I’d said that, but my point was that a player of his quality, you either play or you go. If I was him, I wouldn’t want to be on the bench, and from Klopp’s point of view there is nobody else on the bench he could get money for, if he needed say Â£20m or Â£25m.”
Carra’s view is probably one shared by many, but not many would have the balls to say it to his face. Sturridge is a quality player, there’s no doubting that but would he be happy being a squad player? Probably not. Would he take a wage cut? Probably not. Will he play 30 games next season? Probably not. You see my point.
I would love to see him at Liverpool next season, he is still quality and with all the games we have coming we need as much depth and quality as possible.
Would you have him there next season? Let us know in the comment section below.
