Daniel Sturridge Is The First Player To Win Champions League With Two Different English Clubs

Daniel Sturridge Is The First Player To Win Champions League With Two Different English Clubs

Daniel Sturridge has not one but TWO Champions League winners' medal to his name.

In fact, he's the first player to win the coveted European trophy with two different English clubs in UEFA Champions League history.

He was an unused substitute in both finals.

Sturridge first tasted Champions League success back in 2012 with Chelsea. The Blues beat Bayern Munich to secure the 'Big Ears' trophy.

And, of course, he added another Champions League winners' medal to his collection after Liverpool beat Tottenham in Madrid over the weekend.

And the 29-year-old striker has reflected on his latest accolade.

"It's my second time [winning European Cup, having done it with Chelsea]. It's almost similar," he said following Liverpool's 2-0 victory against Spurs.

"The one with Chelsea was the first in the club's history and this is the first under this manager, so it's a similar kind of feeling."

The ex-Chelsea man insists the whole team deserves credit for Liverpool recording their sixth European title.

"I contributed and even the players who haven't played a minute," he added.

"There are guys who have been on the bench and haven't played a single minute, but they have been a part of it.

"From training, to acting like the opposition that we have been playing against, to doing a job, to sacrificing themselves and the way that they play just to train to do a job on the training field to help them prepare themselves the best way that they can. It's amazing."

Sturridge, who has been at Anfield since 2012, also spoke about his future, but he remains tight lipped about where he'll play his football next season.

"I don't even want to talk about all that stuff. feel like it has been an incredible time and I am not going to talk about next season or anything.

"What's important now is celebrating something so momentous, something we were striving for, working for a long time. to finally win something is amazing."

Sturridge scored four goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season including a strike against Paris Saint-Germain.
