Gerrard revealed at the start of the year that this will be his last season as a Liverpool player and it has since been confirmed that he will join MLS side LA Galaxy at the end of this campaign.
However, Sturridge, who is finally set to return to the Liverpool squad after five months out injured, says he is certain the 34-year-old talismanic skipper will one day return to Merseyside one day to sit in the Anfield hot seat.
“I’m devastated he’s leaving,” Sturridge said, reports Sky Sports. “I think he’ll be at the club in some capacity very soon and I’m sure he’ll manage the club one day.
“Words can’t describe what he’s done for Liverpool as well as his country.
“He’s still a role model of mine. I look up to him, I think everyone in the squad does. He’ll be sorely missed – he’s somebody who’s given me a lot of experience and helped me to improve as a person and a footballer.”
Sturridge also revealed that he is eager to make up for lost time after an injury suffered whilst on international duty with England has kept him one the sidelines since the end of August. As a result, he’s had to contend with supporting his side from the stands.
“I’ve been champing at the bit,” Sturridge said. “I’m ready now – it’s been a long time coming, but I am happy with how everything has gone and I am looking forward to it. I won’t hold back from anything.”
