Daniel Sturridge couldn’t resist messaging Naby Keita after spotting his move vs Everton

Daniel Sturridge has messaged Naby Keita after the Liverpool midfielder was seen inadvertently copying his signature dance move during Sunday’s 2-0 win over Everton at Anfield.

An image of Keita in Sturridge’s pose went viral on social media over the weekend.

The Guinea international raised his arms to protest his innocence as Everton’s Anthony Gordon went to ground inside the Liverpool box.

Referee Stuart Attwell saw that Gordon had dived, however, and showed a yellow card to the 21-year-old.

While attempting to avoid making contact with Gordon, Keita did ‘the Sturridge’.

Others on social media were quick to make the same observation:

And now Sturridge himself has joined in on the fun.

“There’s never a wrong time to drop this move,” the former England international said on his Instagram story, tagging in Keita.

Fair play, Daniel.

What happened to Daniel Sturridge?

Liverpool fans will always have a soft spot for Sturridge, who was sensational during his first one-and-a-half seasons at Anfield following his move from Chelsea in 2013.

He scored 24 goals in 33 appearances during his first full campaign with the Merseyside outfit and was unfortunate to miss out on a Premier League winners’ medal that season.

The attacking triumvirate that he was part of, alongside Luis Suarez and a young Raheem Sterling, had Liverpool fans on the edge of their seats throughout 2013-14.

Sadly, though, injuries hindered Sturridge’s career and prevented him from becoming a Premier League great.

Now 32, Sturridge currently plies his trade with Australian side Perth Glory but will always hold fond memories from his spell at Liverpool.
