No, he didn’t retire or leave Liverpool FC, Daniel Sturridge has just been out with a hip injury. The former Chelsea forward is finally back in Liverpool training after the lengthy lay off.
Sturridge has not played for Liverpool since April when he picked up the hip injury and has now been on the treatment table for almost a year. Sturridge only managed 18 games for Liverpool last season after he spent 5 months on the sidelines with a thigh problem. Sturridge returned to training but was out again for 6 weeks with a calf strain and no sooner than his return, he picked up the picked up the hip injury. Sturridge returned to training just yesterday after spending most of the summer in rehabilitation and Liverpool would be excited to get their player back.
Liverpool fans should know that Sturridge might not be fit enough to play against Manchester United on Saturday but they would be hoping he can be fit soon enough to pain Benteke in front and help Liverpool push for a top four finish
