Daniel Sturridge has had a stop start career

Daniel Sturridge has had a stop start career in the last couple of years and there appears to be no respite immediately after he has been ruled out yet again with a slight knock.

Sturridge started playing for new manager Jurgen Klopp only recently and he has already gone into the sidelines following a knock in training. The new manager has claimed that he does not know when the striker would be able to resume first-team football once again. This comes as a major disappointment for Liverpool fans, who had played a lot of faith in the 26-year-old striker.

Sturridge remains is one of the quality players at Anfield, but former manager Brendan Rodgers was unable to use his expertise much in the last 12 months. The striker has played only three league games so far and he already demonstrated his quality by scoring two goals in these games. He has not been in the first-team since the 1-1 draw against Everton. Only prior to this game, Sturridge had scored two goals in the 3-2 win over Aston Villa. Klopp, though, admitted that the player was working extremely hard in order to return to action as soon as possible.

Despite the arrival of Klopp, Liverpool haven’t had a good run in terms of results."I think he will return soon. But soon is relative. I don't know when he will be back.It isn't as fast as we thought of course but we cannot put pressure on this. He is starting to train outside after four weeks, so of course he needs time to bring him back in shape or whatever. He can start training and then we can talk about when Sturridge can play, but it's nearly like a summer break and he's really training hard after this,” said Klopp.
