The Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge has been deployed out on the wing while Andre Villas-Boas keeps faith with Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba in the centre-forward position, and his father thinks that the Blues will see a massive improvement if they play his son in his natural position.
Sturridge is already well ahead of the two main strikers in the goalscoring charts, and Michael Sturridge believes that his talent is wasted on the wings. He said: “When he plays in his natural position, which is a central striker, you will see maybe two or three times as much of the player that you now see playing on the wings.
“When you have seen someone play from under-nines right up to adult football as a central striker, then suddenly you see them playing in a different position that you have never seen him play, obviously you know, the position he played in as a youngster is the one he will be more comfortable in.
“Once he is in that position, I expect you will see a major improvement.”
You know what? I think I agree with him! He must SURELY be better than Torres!
