Liverpool Boss Excited About Sturridge Return

Brendan Rodgers is eagerly anticipating the return to full fitness of striker Daniel Sturridge ahead of the new Premier League season.

Sturridge picked up an ankle injury towards the end of last season during England’s friendly with the Republic of Ireland but having missed out on much of pre season the Reds boss is looking forward to his strikers return.

"Thankfully Daniel had his first training session (on Monday) with the team and I thought he looked very sharp," he said in The Times and was quoted on Sky Sports.

"He obviously had an injury at the end of the season which set him back, but he's worked very hard along with the medical guys who have done a great job with him.

"He's played no part in the pre-season so you put him in at the top end of the field with his pace, power and his quality and we are able to add something more to the group as well.

"So it all bodes well for us for the beginning of the season and sets us up nice and solid and exciting for the first game."

If the speculation around Luis Suarez’s future does come to fruition and he was to join Arsenal this summer then Sturridge’s fitness concerns will be move vital to Brendan Rodgers.

Having moved to Merseyside in January this year the England striker grabbed himself 11 goals before the season closed.
