The 23-year-old explains how he found it difficult to settle at either Manchester City or Chelsea having played under no fewer than seven managers since making the step up to first-team football. However, he now sees Liverpool as his long-term home and believes the club will provide him with the stability to prove to people what he can really do.
He goes on to reveal that it was an easy decision to move having spoken to Brendan Rodgers about his plans and, although he was always aware of the club's history, admits he has only really appreciated just how big a club Liverpool are since joining.
He has been encouraged by the partnership he has struck up with Luis Suarez; he believes the pair are "on the same wavelength" and their understanding will only develop as time goes by.
Sturridge also sets the record straight on his best position as a player, insisting he is, and always has been, a centre-forward. He feels that observers have a perception of him as a winger because of his time at Chelsea, but is much happier now he is able to operate through the middle for Liverpool and draws comparisons with friend Theo Walcott's situation at Arsenal.
Sturridge also discusses how important his time on loan at Bolton was and just how big factor on his career Owen Coyle was and continues to be. He describes Coyle as a mentor and "the most influential" person he has worked with and explains that the pair still speak regularly.
It's a fascinating insight into both the man and the player and a must-watch for all Liverpool fans.
