Coyle: I’ll try to get Dan back
Sturridge spent the second half of last season at the Reebok
Stadium, impressing with eight goals in 12 appearances. The England
Under-21 international has admitted he wants to try and break his
way into the Chelsea side, but Coyle believes he would be better
off returning to Bolton for another loan spell. “We will try and
get him back here for next season,” Coyle told the Daily Star.
“It’s a win-win situation – for the player, the parent club and for
us. “I feel with Daniel that another period at Bolton will take him
on to the next level and then he will be a starter for Chelsea.
“Right now he is behind Drogba, Torres, Malouda, Anelka and Kalou.
Like all our loan players, we give them a platform and belief they
can play in the best league in the world. “Daniel set the place
alight during his time here – and we’d love him back to help with
his development next season.”
