Following on from last month’s feature in FourFourTwo magazine, Liverpool & England Striker Daniel Sturridge has spoken again about the Coerver influence on his game following last week’s International friendly with Denmark at Wembley.

Sturridge, who is currently the second highest scorer in the Premier League this season with 18 goals, scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory for England with a fantastic header during the important World Cup warm-up match (see below image).

In the days following the match, Sturridge was interviewed by Sky Sports News and explained how he watched Coerver video footage along with clips of the world’s greatest players to inspire him in the build up to the game against the Danes.

Sky Sports News Interview – Daniel Sturridge – Friday 7th March 2014

Daniel Sturridge is taking inspiration from some of the greats of the game as he aims to fire Liverpool to the Premier League title. Sturridge revealed he studies videos of past superstars to try and improve his game. And his video viewing appears to be paying dividends with the striker in magnificent form for club and country, Sturridge scoring the winner in England’s 1-0 victory over Denmark on Wednesday night.

“I have watched clips of so many players”, Sturridge said. “On Wednesday afternoon I was watching Maradona’s clips to take pointers from the skills he was doing”. “Then I will be watching playing like Michael Owen, Gascoigne, Pele, Ronaldo – all these older players who have done it before me. It is important that I improve, that I keep improving”.

“I was watching Wiel Coerver (the late Dutch skills coach) dribbling skills at the training ground with this young guy who came to the training ground named Harry. I was watching little clips with him and telling him ‘you’ve got to watch these clips, it is important”.

“For me, I can never stop improving no matter what age I am at, what club I am at. I have to push myself as hard I possibly can to get as good as I possibly can”.
