Daniel Sturridge: I am happy at Liverpool and looking forward to the future

Published 1 Comments

The past 18 months have been nothing short of frustrating for Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.

The Englishman's various injuries have seen him spend most of his time on the treatment table, leading to questions over his happiness at Anfield.

However, according to Sky Sports, Sturridge has dismissed such speculation and insists he is happy on Merseyside and excited for what the future holds.

He told reporters prior to Liverpool's Europa League clash with Augsburg on Thursday: "I am looking forward to the future at Liverpool. I am happy here.

"I've always had my family, friends and Liverpool with me. I am happy to be playing and that's all that matters. I think it's important to worry about the present.

"It's been a difficult time being injured but it is part of football and now I'm looking forward to the future, of course with Liverpool.

"There's not much to worry or stress about. I'm happy here. I don't listen to social media."

Sturridge is without question Liverpool's best striker and without him, the Reds have proved inconsistent in front of goal this season.

During his absence, manager Jurgen Klopp has been forced to rely upon summer signings Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino, the former struggling for game time and form, whilst the latter is an able goalscorer yet far from an out-and-out striker.

The impact Sturridge holds on his side when fit was apparent during the club's 6-0 victory over Aston Villa on February 14, the England international marking his long-awaited return with a typically cool finish to open the scoring.

That goal was only his third in the Premier League this season, yet he's only three behind top scorers Benteke and Firmino - both with six - despite making 16 and 17 appearances less respectively.

Therefore, the fact he's looking to put his injury problems behind him and rediscover his best form will come as welcome news to Liverpool fans.

A fully fit and firing Sturridge will be exactly what's needed if Klopp's men are to progress in the Europa League, scale the Premier League table and claim victory in the Capital One Cup final against Manchester City this Sunday.
