Sturridge determined to get Liverpool ‘back where we belong’

The former Chelsea striker is adamant that, under manager manager Brendan Rodgers, the Reds should be challenging for silverware and will do his utmost to make it happen

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has spoke of his determination to get the Anfield club “back where we belong”.

Since finishing second in the Premier League back in 2008-09, the Reds have struggled to compete at the top of the table, placing no higher than sixth over the past four seasons and behind Merseyside rivals Everton in the last two campaigns.

Sturridge, however, is of the belief that the Reds should be competing for titles under manager Brendan Rodgers and has vowed to give his all to ensure the club are fighting for honours in the near future.

“It’s exciting to be a part of that philosophy and a new regime that the manager’s forming for us to move forward as a club,” he told the official club magazine.

“It’s the reason why the manager signed myself and Philippe [Coutinho] as well as the players he signed at the start of the season. The aim was to help the team get back to where it belongs.

“When you play in the Premier League everybody’s goal is to lift that trophy, to have the celebrations and to know that you’ve succeeded and been a champion over everybody else in the division.

“With the philosophy that the manager has, we should be challenging for honours. I think it’s going to be great for us in the future and we can move forward.

“We’ll all be doing everything in our power to make sure that Liverpool is a club that is challenging for Premier League titles because the fans have been waiting for that for a long time and hopefully next season we’ll be in the running.”
