Rodgers: Sturridge Can Be One Of Europe’s Best

After a match winning Daniel Sturridge hat trick against Fulham on Sunday, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers said that he could be one of Europe’s top strikers.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City man has led the line for Liverpool since Luis Suarez was hit with a ten match ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic.

His hat-trick at Craven Cottage saw his manager shower him with praise, suggesting the England international can go on to become one of the best marksmen on the continent.

"I've been mightily impressed by Daniel Sturridge. He is a young player who has got all the attributes to be a top European forward," he told reporters after Liverpool's 3-1 win over Fulham.

"We were very exciting. Going forward we were really creative. We scored three and could have had more. It was a terrific second half performance," he continued.

"I think we can have an exciting season next year. We can build. We need more depth in the summer. We will be looking for a real sustainable challenge for the top four."
