Sturridge hopes to be Blues regular

Published Add your comment

On-loan Bolton striker Daniel Sturridge wants regular first-team football when he returns to Chelsea next season.

The 20-year-old has been a revelation since joining Wanderers in January, scoring six goals in eight appearances. However, with Chelsea having spent £50million on Fernando Torres in the last transfer window and Didier Drogba still appearing to be their main striker Sturridge may find opportunities limited.

"I hope [my future is at Chelsea]. When I go back there I'll have three years left but it's obviously up to the club," he told talkSPORT.

"I'm just enjoying my football at the moment, trying to play regularly, and I want to play regular first-team football.

"If I can play first-team football at Chelsea then great but I don't really want to be on the bench because I enjoy playing from the beginning.

"It's difficult coming in and playing the odd game for Chelsea because there's a lot of pressure.

"It's a huge club so to not start week in week out and play one game in six or seven there's not only pressure from other people but you put pressure on yourself because you want to do so well, to try and prove that you're good enough to play."
