Giggs questions Sturridge's decision-making

13 October 2016, 09:44

Cape Town - Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs believes England and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge must improve his decision-making if he is to be seen as a world-class player.

Sturridge has blown hot and cold in 2016/17, and has yet to rediscover the kind of form that saw him hit 24 goals for the Reds in 2013/14.

In addition, the 27-year-old was largely disappointing for England as a lone striker in the recent draw (0-0) with Slovenia.

Sturridge's stock at Anfield seems to have fallen in recent times, with Jurgen Klopp often preferring to start the likes of Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in attack.

With that said, Giggs has expressed his view that it is the forward's decision-making that is holding him back from becoming a top-class performer.

The 42-year-old told ITV: "I played with Sturridge at the Olympics (in 2012 for Great Britain). He has everything. He's got a good touch, good finisher, he's quick, he can run the channels.

"But, to be a top, top player... decision-making. You have to make the right decisions. You have to make the right decisions more often than you make bad decisions. Against Slovenia, there were just too many bad decisions."

Sturridge will be hoping to make a start for the Reds on Monday, October 17, when Klopp's men take on Manchester United at Anfield.
