Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge speaks about surprise alternative career

Daniel Sturridge has been speaking about what he may do in the future once he has finished at Liverpool.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has revealed a possible new career when he finishes playing football.

The England international has just signed a new five-year deal at Anfield, but in an interview with Esquire, he revealed what the future could hold for him away from the pitch.

“I loved Drama class at school,” the Reds star said. “I never took it seriously as I was playing football. But maybe when I retire I’ll have a dabble.”

Given that Sturridge also has an interest in fashion and music, there are plenty of possibilities once he finishes what looks like being an outstanding and honour-filled career.

But those thoughts are very much for another day, with the 25-year-old now committed to the Anfield club until at least 2019.

Considering how he has performed at Liverpool thus far, there is no reason why he cannot go on to become one of their greatest ever strikers, and if he is half as good at acting as he is at playing the game, he may do far more than just “dabble” when he does finally call time on his footballing career.
