Danny Sturridge is grateful to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for bringing him to Anfield.

The former Chelsea striker has been able to finally play regular football after making the move in January.

"I'm very grateful - very grateful to the manager for giving me an opportunity," the 23-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com.

"I was at Man City before Chelsea and everything was fine there, in fairness. I didn't have any problems, everything worked out, but I chose to leave because I didn't feel it was the best place for me to further my career.

"I moved on to Chelsea and had success. We won trophies and I have medals but in terms of my own individual ambitions, I didn't get to fulfil them.

"Hopefully here, now I'm at a club that believes in me with a manager who believes in me, I can give the fans something to smile about.

"I thank the manager for giving me the opportunity to get where I am today."
