World News – UA – Man City set to sign free agent Daniel Sturridge to fix Pep Guardiola issue


Manchester City are set to sign free agent Daniel Sturridge, according to former teammate Micah Richards Sturridge has been out of a club since leaving Trabzonspor on the Turkish side earlier this year The former England international started his professional career at City before leaving for Chelsea in 2009

And Richards reckons Sturridge is good enough to step into Pep Guardiola’s squad and score goals

Specialist says people have forgotten how good Sturridge is and that he is still capable of playing in the English top flight

« It would have been easy for Daniel to get away from the game, but he’s still hungry, » Richards wrote in his BBC column

« He went to Turkey last year to escape all the injury-prone talk and have a few games under his belt, to show he can stay in shape

« He was doing well with Trabzonspor and taking advantage of it before being banned for breaking the betting rules

« When he plays football again it might be with another team abroad, but I can’t help but think that there are several clubs in the Premier League who miss a turn in not signing it

« I would include City, just to complete while Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are injured Even if he was half-fit he would score goals on this side

« Right now it almost feels like people have forgotten how good he is, but Daniel still has time to remind them and show everyone what he really is »

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash in Marseille, Guardiola said Aguero could be out for a month

« If it’s a little longer it will be three weeks, one month Musculars don’t normally move [beyond] these [parameters] Sergio will be the same, there won’t be any exceptions « 

Speaking earlier this month, Sturridge insisted his injury issues were due to bad luck, not lack of effort

“I would spend a lot of money outside of physical therapists at work doing extra things to be as healthy as possible,” Sturridge said

« Hundreds of thousands, to be fair, you know, to make sure my body has to be in the best possible shape

« And sometimes you can do, you can put in the hours, you can do everything But sometimes it’s just luck »
