Sturridge took advice from the Englishman’s former team-mate.
During Liverpool’s 4-1 Premier League victory over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, Daniel Sturridge netted the striker’s eighth league goal in nine matches.
This consistency has spilled over from the great form the 24-year-old showed for the Reds when joining from Chelsea in January of this year.
Yet Sturridge says it is a Blues legend, Didier Drogba, that has made the England international play so well in 2013/14.
“I saw Didier in Miami this summer,” the forward was quoted by the Mirror.
“He said the strongest thing an individual can have is the mental strength.
“He told me, ‘It’s not about the tactical, it’s not about the technical, it’s not about the physical. If you believe in yourself, that will set you apart.'”
The strike against West Brom keeps Sturridge as the top-scorer in the English top tier and the attacker has shown incredible consistency by netting in all but one of the league ties so far.
The Englishman would do well to take a leaf out of Drogba’s book as well, with the Ivorian scoring 100 Premier League goals in eight years at Stamford Bridge.
Sturridge spent three years playing alongside the 35-year-old and despite having limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge, must have picked up a few tips.
If the attacker can maintain this form it is not only good news for Brendan Rodgers’ side, but also the England national team ahead of the World Cup.
Sturridge and Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney are beginning to form a good partnership up-front for the Three Lions.
