Will Liverpool FC sell Daniel Sturridge after injury problems?
Reports suggest Liverpool FC ready to listen to offers for Sturridge
January 11th, 2016
Daniel Sturridge enjoyed a massive breakthrough season with Liverpool two years ago, although it’s been hard work since then.
The forward teamed up with Luis Suarez to nearly land the Premier League title for the Reds, although it has since been stop-start for a player who was England’s first-choice forward at the 2014 World Cup although looks destined to miss out for Euro 2016.
The Daily Mirror suggests that Sturridge’s time at Anfield could be coming to an end, with Jurgen Klopp having seen just glimpses of the player since replacing Brendan Rodgers as manager.
“Daniel had some problems, not serious, but could not make a session and we had to wait a day,” Klopp said last week.
“It is how a pre-season can be. Some little things happen and we have to handle this. It is not a row of sessions and we say ‘Now we are here and go…’
“When he is fit, we will pick him, but at this moment because he didn’t have one session with the team he’s not available.”
Klopp must now prepare for Wednesday’s clash against Arsenal as the fixtures continue to come thick and fast. The German admits that the flurry of games has created an intensity he wasn’t prepared for.
“The number of games is the biggest difference (from Germany),” Klopp told several national newspapers.
“When I came here, I didn’t know there were two (legs) in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup. I had people in Germany, saying after we beat Stoke, ‘yeah, you’re in the final again!’ Idiots!
“In Germany, when you tell people about the FA Cup – that if you draw you play again – they say ‘what?’. Here you have penalties and extra time, but only after the second game.”
