Daniel Sturridge Week Continues: He Speaks!

Scott Sinclair's zombie tries to infect Daniel "Legend" Sturridge with mid-table-level-talent-DNA.

"Ah man, that doesn't look good." That's how Daniel Sturridge described his miss from about half a yard out versus Uruguay. Fortunately for him and his British compatriots, he had already scored once earlier in the match, ensuring that Team GB finished top of their qualifying group in the 2012 Men's Football Olympic Tournament.

The young Chelsea striker was speaking to Hawksbee & Jacobs earlier this week, and it was nice to hear him have a bit of a laugh at his own expense. Many accuse Sturridge of not being the most affable person around, but no such qualities were on display in this 6.5-minute interview - head over to TalkSport for the quick listen.

I've lost count by now how many times we've heard of Sturridge's desire to play center forward, but that was once again the biggest highlight of the interview:

I’ve been waiting for the opportunity [...] and hopefully this season will be the one where I can show what I can do there. Hopefully the manager will give me a chance.

That's nothing new of course and we are (or should be by now) familiar with the center forward conundrum at Chelsea. As things stand however (minus one Didier Drogba; perhaps minus one Romelu Lukaku loan), I don't think Sturridge should be overly concerned at getting his chance.

He does need to make sure to seize it with both hands when it comes; show that the second half of last season was just a blip and that the 2011 version of Daniel Sturridge is the truth.
