There is arguably no better celebration in the Premier League today than Daniel Sturridge’s. Or maybe we enjoy it because we see it very often with the striker having already scored six times in the league this season.
Now Sturridge is forming a formidable partnership with Luis Suarez following the strikers return from a ten match ban. The pair are now being dubbed ‘SAS’ following the Shearer and Sutton partnership that guided Blackburn to Premier League success in 1995, and it looks like this Liverpool combo is going to be the key to Liverpool’s success this term.
Sturridge was speaking to KICK OFF magazine and was asked if there is any chance he could teach Suarez to do the “Sturridge Dance”. Daniel said, “I don’t know if he’s got the rhythm for that yet.
“But what I will say is he is definitely someone I could try to teach. Whether he takes it on board or not, is a different story.
“I think Carra tried it maybe because his son put a lot of pressure on him.
“I like Carra’s son a lot, he’s a good kid and I used to have a bit of banter with him when he’d come around here so I think he forced his daddy to do it.
“I would love the guys to get involved, but so far, only Carra has been brave enough.”
I must say that watching Carragher attempt the Sturridge last season was a funny sight, but 10 out of 10 to Carra for trying.
The Sturridge Dance may look easy to do when you see him doing it but believe me it is not that easy. Most footballers do not seem to have that dance rhythm in them naturally to carry out such moves. It would be interesting to see though if Sturridge does manage to teach Suarez how to do it.
But celebrations aside, the most important thing is for the two players to be able to score the goals first that will allow them to carry out their celebrations. Sturridge added, “We have a good understanding, have assisted each other on different occasions and it’s a great feeling. We help each other and improve each other and we also get along off the field.”
