Sturridge celebrates Barcelona goal in 2004 with trademark dance

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge seems to have mastered his trademark goal celebration after finding the net on 16 occasions in the Premier League this season.

Where his fancy footwork originated from, it was not previously clear though, until a ten year old video of the England international recently emerged during his youth team days at Manchester City.

In an U15s game against Barcelona in the Nike Premier Cup in 2004, Sturridge can be seen scoring against the Catalan giants and celebrating his goal with a memorable dance.

The now 24-year-old was later interviewed on Barca TV where he told the journalist how proud he was to score against Barcelona, and vowed to continue working hard to improve his game after being named player of the tournament.

Of course, Sturridge left City in 2009 in favour of a transfer to Chelsea, but left Stamford Bridge in January 2013, when he was snapped up by Liverpool in a £12million deal.

The striker has excelled since moving to Anfield, and has established a prolific partnership with Luis Suarez in attack.

He could yet help fire Brendan Rodgers's side to the Premier League title this season. Imagine the dancing, and scenes of celebration if the domestic trophy ends up on Merseyside!

Watch Daniel Sturridge's goal, silly celebration and interview in the video above, and leave your prediction in the comment box provided with how many Premier League goals you think the Liverpool striker will manage by the end of the 2013/14 season.
