Sami Hyypia: Liverpool FC star is lethal, he’s a quality finisher
Sami Hyypia reveals that he is a keen admirer of Daniel Sturridge at Liverpool FC
Sami Hyypia has talked up Daniel Sturridge’s ability and claims that the striker deserves a regular run in the first team at Liverpool.
The England international came off the bench to score a late goal in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Maribor in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Sturridge has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Liverpool under Klopp this season, with the striker having only started four of the Reds’ 10 Premier League games.
The 28-year-old has scored three goals and made two assists in all competitions this season under Klopp.
However, former Liverpool star Hyypia has suggested that Sturridge is worthy of a more regular spot in the first team and says he is a big admirer of the striker.
Speaking to BT Sport after the victory over Maribor, Hyypia said: “He’s a finisher. He is lethal inside and around the box.
“He could have suited the game [against Maribor] pretty well.”
Sturridge will be hoping to feature for Liverpool when the Reds return to Premier League action on Saturday evening with a trip to east London to take on West Ham United.
The Reds, who finished in fourth place last season, head into the game looking to build on their 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League at Anfield last weekend.
