Sturridge Following in Wilshere’s Footsteps

Daniel Sturridge has scored in every game so far for Bolton this season

It was only last season that England international Jack Wilshere was on-loan at Bolton to gain first team experience.

This year it is the turn of Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge looking to make an impact at the Reebok Stadium.

Sturridge has scored in every game he has played for Bolton this season which has already made him a popular face in the North West.

Since joining in January, Sturridge has been a permanent fixture in Owen Coyle’s transformed Bolton Wanderers outfit.

Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Nicolas Anelka and Salomon Kalou are all competition for the youngster at Chelsea who has only made twenty six appearances and scored once since 2009 for the Blues.

Sturridge has suggested that he’d like to stay at Bolton past the end of this season in order to play regular first team football, and I’m sure Coyle will have no complaints.

Last season, Jack Wilshere was on loan at The Trotters and has so far exceeded all expectations this season.

After his impressive spell at the Reebok, he was recalled by Arsene Wenger and has now undoubtedly proved to be Arsenal’s star of the season with a handful of man-of-the-match awards to his name.

Daniel Sturridge is looking to emulate Wilshere’s path and establish himself as a top Premier League player as well as a respectable England international.

Sturridge has paid tribute to Trotter’s boss Coyle, saying that  he has given him the confidence that he needs to start banging in the goals.

Lets hope the good form of Sturridge continues as the national side look for more and more young internationals to be breaking through.

Keep updated on the Youth Radar with all of Sturridge’s progress in the coming months as he tries and lifts Bolton into the Europa League.
