Daniel Sturridge drove his new £230,000 Rolls Royce to Liverpool's training ground today

If Daniel Sturridge was a car, he'd be a Lamborghini. Expensive, fast, flashy, but likely to break down without any warning whatsoever.

The Liverpool man doesn't own the car most like his own career, but he does own a frankly bonkers £230,000 white Rolls Royce. 

The 26-year-old was spotted driving the flashy motor into Liverpool's Melwood training complex today, before the club's Europa League showdown against Augsburg this evening.

Jurgen Klopp's side battled to a 1-0 win, which came thanks to a first-half James Milner penalty, and that puts them in the hat for the last-16 draw.

The game was a bit of a dud, and Sturridge's own performance left plenty to be desired - but the same cannot be said of his new car, which is a step up from the modest VW Scirocco he was spotted in earlier this season.

It's been a testing campaign for Sturridge so far this season, and the former Chelsea and Manchester City man has played just nine games, scoring five goals.

However he seems to have turned a corner, and has appeared in Liverpool's recent games against Aston Villa and West Ham, as well as both legs against Augsburg.

Injury woes

Such has been the extent of Sturridge's injury problems that he's been linked with a move away from Merseyside in recent weeks, and he recently admitted he feels disrespected by some suggestions that he's not giving 100% to be on the pitch.

"To say a player doesn't want to play, that's the biggest disrespect you could pay a footballer," he said. "It's astonishing and disappointing, whoever's saying it -- it's football and people are entitled to their opinions, but I don't think anyone will understand how much it means to me to play football.

"I don't listen to social media, so I'm not aware, to be honest. I didn't know religion had anything to do with football. I'll focus on what I do best, playing for Liverpool FC."

Do you think Sturridge can be one of the best strikers in the country again?
