Chelsea regretting Sturridge sale, believes Lampard

Former Chelsea star Frank Lampard has said that he believes the club are regretting their decision to allow striker Daniel Sturridge move to Liverpool, Sky Sports has reported.

Daniel Sturridge

Sturridge moved to Chelsea from Manchester City as a 19-year-old in the summer of 2009, but throughout his time at Stamford Bridge he found opportunities difficult to come by and was often played out of position on the wing rather than through the middle.

With £50m signing Fernando Torres among those preferred in attack, Chelsea allowed Sturridge to join Liverpool in January 2013, and he has forced his way into the England starting XI with a hugely impressive scoring record of 36 goals in 49 outings, as well as forming a successful partnership with Luis Suarez.

And Lampard, who will be alongside Sturridge on the plane to Brazil and the World Cup on Sunday, admits that selling Sturridge was a mistake for Chelsea. "I'm really pleased for Sturridge because at Chelsea I think he was a bit frustrated," he said. "He felt he could have played more.

"He felt the position he was playing in was one he wasn't quite happy with and it was good for him to move in the end. It was may not be good business for Chelsea. It looks bad, but you look back and you never know. Individually for him it was a good move. He has gone from strength to strength.’
