Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has revealed that he honed his game by watching the stars of La Liga when he was growing up.
He told FourFourTwo: "When I was 13 I didn't want to go out with my mates - I'd stay in and watch La Liga instead.
"Seeing Zidane, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo producing their magic week in, week out was a real buzz.
"I've always studied the best Brazilians. I used to watch videos of Pele and loved seeing Rivaldo at Barcelona. I'm left-footed like he is, so I always tried to pick up bits from his game."
Sturridge has scored 22 goals in 30 appearances for Liverpool since joining from Chelsea last year.body check tags ::
