Some Aston Villa fans have responded to comments made by reported transfer target Daniel Sturridge over his future.
The Birmingham-born striker was released by Liverpool at the end of the 2018/19 season after winning the Champions League, beating Tottenham Hotspur in last year’s final. After moving to Turkish club Trabzonspor, the former Chelsea striker was linked with a move to Villa Park back in the January transfer window.
The move never materialised and Sturridge was then hit with controversy as he was released from his contract in the Turkish Super Lig after being banned for breaching betting rules.
After four goals in his seven league starts for Trabzonspor, it looked as though the striker had reignited his career, but as a free agent he has now commented on his future, revealing that he would like to move back to the Premier League.
Reacting to the comments made by the former Liverpool striker, these Villa fans offered a response via Twitter account Aston Villa News.
Why would we want an end of career, injury prone, inconsistent waste of money player like Sturridge. Micah Richards anyone?!
