Whispered rumours that Daniel Sturridge is preparing to leave Liverpool have become a roar, and it is nearly impossible to ignore the fact that the striker may be preparing to depart from Anfield. There are strong suggestions that if both parties agree to a deal, Sturridge will be released from his £150,000-a-week contract.
The supposed discord appears to be largely due to the fact that Sturridge has been plagued by injuries and that every time he seems fit enough to hold down a starting place, he suffers another setback. His injury issues have repeatedly put him in the spotlight and left him on the bench, making him an expensive addition to the Liverpool team.
Injuries Prevent Play
At only 26, Sturridge’s injuries have been causing Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp an ongoing headache. At one point, he even questioned the player’s pain tolerance and attitude toward pain
A number of ailments have affected Sturridge’s performance and ability to play since the 6th of December, and he’s currently recovering from a hamstring injury. Rumours abound that Sturridge has voiced his displeasure at the way his injuries have been portrayed by his club, but the player has yet to make any sort of official announcement.
A Solid Relationship
Sturridge’s susceptibility to injury is a problem, but Klopp says that he has a normal relationship with the player, and he assumes that he will tell him face to face if he wishes to quit Liverpool.
Sturridge has been involved in light training and soccer drills that could be similar to those outlined at Website in an effort to maintain his fitness levels and get back on the pitch. If he is fit and free of injuries, there is a chance he could play against West Ham as early as next Tuesday.
A Remarkable Player
In the 2013-2014 season, Sturridge scored a remarkable 28 goals for Liverpool during the Premier League season and quickly became one of Europe’s highest-rated strikers. Often compared to Luis Suarez, Sturridge seemed unstoppable until a spate of injuries saw him sitting on the sidelines.
Since the 2013-2014 season, Sturridge has only been able to play in 24 games for Liverpool. Whether the rumours turn out to be true or not, there appears to be an air of uncertainty surrounding Sturridge’s future.
