Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has spoken about his excitement of his loan move to West Bromwich Albion.
The England international has joined the Premier League strugglers on a temporary deal until the end of the season and has explained why he rejected other interest to get the move done.
“There were many things in deciding on this move.” he said.
“The manager spoke very well when we talked about the challenge with the team, there was the style of play and this feels like it was the right fit at the right time.
“I’ve got some friends here who are West Brom fans so I can’t let them down as much as the any of the Albion supporters.
“Coming here, I’m back home. When I’ve played here, it had a home feel for me.
“I’m seeing faces in the stands that I’ve known growing up. It’s a good feeling for me being here. I want to enjoy myself as much as I can but getting results is our first priority.
“God willing I’ll be able to help the team win games. That’s the most important thing. Whether it’s goals, assists, hard work, all of those things.
“It’s important for myself and for the team to implement the manager’s plans, his tactics, take those on board and learn the way the team plays as quickly as possible.” he finished.
Sturridge will visit some familiar places in his first few matches with the Baggies, as they face Manchester City and Chelsea in two of their next three league games.
