Liverpool fans may finally be able to see light at the end of the tunnel as Daniel Sturridge has confirmed that he is on his way back from the United States.
The England striker has been seeing a specialist in Phoenix, Arizona, since the autumn after struggling with thigh and calf injuries.
His last appearance for Liverpool was the Reds’ 3-0 victory over Spurs at White Hart Lane on August 31.
Just hold on we’re going home
The striker posted on his Twitter today that a return to England would occur in the coming weeks.
“Do you think about me now and then do you think about me now and then... I'm coming home again. #home,” he tweeted.
Scott Schrimscher, the personal trainer who has helped Sturridge rehabilitate from his muscle injuries has hailed the strikers hard work in working towards a return to first team football. “Daniel has an incredible work ethic and is wonderful to work with. He is a class act and has a bright future ahead.
“The methodology we utilized with Daniel is supported by four main pillars: mindset, movement, nutrition, and recovery and it is that holistic and seamlessly integrated system that helps players of all levels improve their performance on the pitch.”
Brendan Rodgers has already explained that having Sturridge back soon will be like having a new signing at the club – and it’ll come at a time when Liverpool are in serious need of a boost.
"Daniel will come back into the country in early January to finalise his rehab and we hope he will be ready towards the middle and end of January.”
He continued: "There won't be much activity for us in January. We brought in a lot of players in the summer who we feel can develop. My job is to coach and manage the players who are here and maximise that talent."
