Daniel Sturridge has made the wrong decision by choosing to join West Brom over Newcastle, according to Ian Wright.
Sturridge secured his departure from Liverpool in a loan until the end of the season on Monday.
He had the choice of West Brom, Newcastle or a move abroad, but decided to move to the relegation-battling Baggies for family reasons.
Wright has questioned the move, however.
“Being a Newcastle hero is different to being a West Brom hero, with all due respect,” Wright told BBC 5 Live’s Monday Night Club.
“We are talking about a set of fans that when you are wanting to get a lift when you are playing because you haven’t had love for the last three or four years; to me, if I was in his position right now, I would have chosen Newcastle.
“Watching Newcastle recently, they have missed a lot of chances – chances I believe he could have taken.
“If they had taken those chances then the player who are providing those chances would then continue to try and take them.
“So I think going to Newcastle with that roar, he could have really galvanised them.”
