England international Daniel Sturridge has become the most injury-susceptible player of Liverpool as his career has been marred by countless injuries.
Sturridge picked up an injury on Tuesday while starring for the Reds in Liverpool’s Audi Cup thumping of Bundesliga holders Bayern Munich. However, the striker has played down the severity of the injury, according to the Independent.
Sturridge was in fine form for Liverpool last night as he scored the third goal of Liverpool. He came on for the Reds record signing Mohamed Salah and played only 16minutes before hurting himself in the process of scoring in the second half, he was substituted afterwards.
Speaking after the game, Sturridge allayed fears that he will be of action.
“It just a little bit of tension kicking off,” the England striker said.
“I’ve done a lot of running and a lot of work. We train on the morning of the games. I think it’s just a bit of fatigue to be honest. I’ll be okay.
“I’m feeling great, I’ve put in a lot of work, I trained a lot in the summer in LA.
“I haven’t missed many sessions here, they’re looking after me, we have done triple sessions and things like that.
“I’ve trained nearly every session. I’m feeling the best I’ve felt for a little while and I’m looking forward to the season and hopefully we can have some success.”
The 27-year-old striker is failing to fulfill his potential given the length of hiatus he’s had over sustaining injuries. He has featured sparingly for the Reds over the last three seasons. He has managed 25 Premier League starts in three seasons and there is no telling if he will be able to stay fit this term.
Klopp has already bolstered the squad of the Reds and Sturridge is expected to be playing second fiddle to the likes of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
We hope he stays fit for his benefit.
