Ex-Chelsea coach Wilkins tipping Sturridge for stardom

Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins feels Danny Sturridge can become a star.

Wilkins has backed Sturridge to become one of the best strikers in the Premier League if he knuckles down.

He told talkSPORT: "He's an enormously talented guy, he's extremely quick and I've seen him rip the Chelsea senior players to pieces in training but that has obviously got to be translated on to the Saturday afternoon.

"Unfortunately at Chelsea it didn't quite happen on the Saturday's for Daniel but going to Bolton where there was slightly less pressure he flourished and played some excellent football.

"He's still only a young man. I honestly believe Daniel can be anything Daniel wants to be if he's prepared to give the blast.

"I think he could be an exceptional talent."
