The “best place” for former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge would be a return to Manchester City, according to Carlton Cole.
The forward came through Man City’s academy and played for their first-team between 2007 and 2009. He made 32 appearances for them in all competitions, scoring six goals.
Sturridge departed the club in August 2009 to join Chelsea before eventually signing for Liverpool in 2013, where he spent the most successful part of his career.

The former City man is now out of contract following a short spell at Turkish side Trabzonspor – where he scored seven goals in just 16 games for the Süper Lig outfit – and former West Ham striker Cole reckons Sturridge could do a good job for City.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Cole said: “Yeah, why not? He’s obviously got the quality, he’s a quality player.
“He’s had his injuries, but I wouldn’t put that of paramount concern right now. He’s played games over in Turkey and he did alright over there.
“He opted to leave Turkey and come back. Right now, it would be the best place for him.
“He knows Manchester City, he knows the people there, and hopefully, he could have an influence on their striker problem at the moment.”
So Patrick Bamford got us thinking about absolutely random Premier League hat-trick goalscorers. Justice for “busy” Kevin Lisbie.
