Man City boss Eriksson excited by Sturridge potential

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson has named Danny Sturridge in his squad for their FA Cup tie against Sheffield United.

Eriksson believes Sturridge, who scored a hat-trick in City's 3-1 FA Youth Cup win over Reading on Wednesday, is a star of the future.

"He is strong and his technique is excellent as he has a very good first touch," said Eriksson. "He is friends with the ball. He doesn't fight with it. It comes to him naturally. He is a good player, now and for the future."
