Klopp To Go Slow With Sturridge

share on:

Despite Daniel Sturridge tweeting on Saturday about how he is good to go, Jurgen Klopp will be careful with him.

Sturridge has dealt with injuries since last season and picked up his latest hamstring injury, that has sidelined him for four weeks.

And with Origi out with a hamstring injury of his own, Klopp will still not rush Sturridge’s return.

“This is absolutely the same thing that Daniel said four weeks ago,” Klopp told reporters.

“We let him play and he was injured again. He says this, you ask him and he says he’s good. I know he is good. But he has to train. We cannot change the situation. He has to train now.

“With him, last week and this week are most intensive weeks in training for Daniel Sturridge in the last three years. So now you can see what we have to do. We cannot say ‘Come on Daniel! Now you look good, so you can play!’

“I don’t want to see him (playing) in training. Everybody sees him training and they think ‘oh, come on, bring him into the team’ we need his quality!’ But no. We really, really have to be patient now, we have to wait.

“We have to train, we have to give the body the right information, and if he can do this, then maybe we can change something.”

Liverpool will be looking to build on their win over league leaders Leicester when they face Sunderland on Wednesday.
