Daniel Sturridge Biography

Daniel Andre Sturridge (born 1 September 1989) is an English footballer who plays for Chelsea and the England national team. Sturridge comes from a footballing family as he is the nephew of former football strikers Simon Sturridge and Dean Sturridge. He is primarily a forward, although he has often played on the wing for Chelsea. He is known for his pace, dribbling skills, a powerful long-range shot and his ability to play as a striker or a right winger. Sturridge played for Aston Villa, before moving to Coventry City in 2002. He then signed for Manchester City a year later. He continued his development at City and played in two FA Youth Cup finals. He made his first team debut in the 2007–08 season, becoming the only player ever to score in the FA Youth Cup, FA Cup and Premier League in the same season. He left City in 2009 and signed for Chelsea, where he was loaned out to Bolton Wanderers for the second half of the 2010–11 season. After a successful spell at Bolton, scoring 8 goals in 12 appearances, Sturridge returned to Chelsea for the 2011–12 season, under new manager André Villas-Boas. He began to emerge as a first-team regular during this period, mostly being used on the right wing. Sturridge has represented England at under-16, under-17, Under-18, under-19, Under-20, under-21 and senior levels. He made 15 appearances and scored four goals for the under-21 side. He made his debut for England against Sweden on 15 November 2011.
