Daniel Sturridge told to speak to Ryan Giggs

Published 3 Comments

Glenn Hoddle believes Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge should speak to Manchester United coach Ryan Giggs in a bid to resolve his injury frustrations, reports the Express.

Sturridge has endured a torrid time throughout the course of the season, having missed the opening half of the season, and now he's been seat another blow after picking up a thigh injury.

Another blow 

In fact, the England international, who scored against Manchester United as Liverpool lost to their rivals at Anfield last weekend, could be on the sidelines for another month.

However, Hoddle believes Sturridge should speak to Giggs, who also struggled with injury at times in the early stages of his career, before going onto play for the Red Devils until he was 40-years-old.

Class of Sturridge 

Hoddle told talkSPORT: "It is bit scary for the lad I must say. He's such a talent.

"I've loved him from day one, even when he was at Manchester City. He's learning now and he knows what he wants.

"He's made mistakes in the past and he's learned from them. He just needs to stay fit. Michael Owen struggled with a hamstring problem and that hindered him, although he was a marvellous striker. He tried very hard to get it sorted out.

"Sturridge is young enough [to sort himself out]. He should go and have a word with Ryan Giggs and go and see what he did eventually.

"He needs to do something that's going to prevent these injuries. There will be a problem there, it doesn't just happen.

"You need to identify the problem and put your finger on it. It might be something Ryan can help with. There will be a way of managing it.

Hoddle is right 

At the end of the day, despite Giggs and Sturridge being rivals on the club scene, Hoddle is right, and the Liverpool ace should use the United legend's expertise on the injury scene. 

Despite a number of problems in his early days, Giggs went on to secure a remarkable career at the Theatre of Dreams, so would only help Sturridge in his attempt to stay on the pitch. 

One thing's for sure, Sturridge won't want to endure another season like this one anytime soon, so he should look into all options as he looks to get his career back on track on Merseyside.Perhaps, then, he should have a word with Giggs sooner rather than later.
