Liverpool boss Rodgers: Sturridge will learn from Gerrard

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Danny Sturridge will learn from Steven Gerrard.

The captain claimed two assists for Luis Suarez's brace against Sunderland - including a stunning 50-yard pass for the second - and the manager is relishing the prospect of Sturridge learning from his peers, such as the Reds No.8.

"Daniel will learn off the top players that are here," said Rodgers. "He's coming in to work with the England captain, who I've got to say over the four games he's played over this period, people have talked about Steven Gerrard not being fit - the guy has been absolutely phenomenal.

"You see his running there at the end and that pass...you won't see a better pass than that this season. It was an absolutely incredible performance by him.

"Daniel is going to learn from everyone, really. He's coming into a club with values and ethics that have been retained for over many, many years. He'll not learn only about football, he'll learn about being a top human being."
