Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has lost his patience with English international Daniel Sturridge after the player did not recover in time.
The injury prone Daniel Sturridge has only played 106 minutes after Jurgen Klopp took over Liverpool from Brendon Rodgers. It is reported that the German is not impressed by the English international’s recovery as he thought the player is not keen on to progress. Sturridge is one of Liverpool’s best players in the last two seasons, but he has always had continuous injury problems that succumbs his improvement.

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly not happy with Daniel Sturridge and may offload him as a result but Klopp’s decision is mainly due to the ‘late’ recoveries, not the injuries. Reports from English media sites suggest that Sturridge’s reasons for late recovery have made Jurgen Klopp angry who is already in a bad mood after a series of bad results.
Liverpool has put a tag of £25m for the forward, but considering the player’s constant injury problems, it is feared that the player won’t fetch that much money for Jurgen Klopp to use. He may be valued lower than what Liverpool are expecting and that may urge Liverpool to wait for the summer transfer window.
Sturridge is currently out of the playing squad as he is recovering from a hamstring injury and has played a mere 290 minutes all the season making just three Premier League starts. Sturridge joined Liverpool from Chelsea in 2013 and scored 44 goals in 72 games. He was one of the ‘untouchable’ players under Brendon Rodgers, but the constant injury concerns are demeriting him.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is in intense pressure to deliver results and it is no surprise that he wants the player completely fit. Just a week back, the German claimed that the player is not able to complete a single training session as he is breaking down due to pain. If these injuries continue then it may bring the end to Sturridge’s days at the Anfield where he made a name for himself.
