Already Practicing Normal, When Sturridge Play Again?
Liverpool – Daniel Sturridge had returned to normal practice with colleagues after a long injury. Now the question is, when the Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, will again play 25-year-old attacker?
Sturridge last played for Liverpool in late August, and he had nearly five months recovering thigh and calf injuries, which make limited appearances this season.
After a month in the United States to perform recovery, Sturridge has returned to the UK since the beginning of this year to carry out the final stage of his recovery.
Sturridge waiting to be back playing would be increasingly close, after the England international was practicing with his colleagues first time this weekend.
“The first day of training alongside teammates. I’m happy,” said Sturridge on his twitter account as quoted by Sky Sports.
Obviously the return to training this Sturridge so good news for Liverpool, who desperately need energy in the front lines. For as long as he is absent, ‘The Red’ like losing the sharpness of the impact on the performance on the field.
Related comeback Sturridge to the gridiron, Rodgers to call the game against West Ham at Anfield next week, most likely for him.
However Rodgers did not rule out the possibility Sturridge will be played in the second leg of the League Cup semi-final at home to Chelsea this midweek, if indeed the doctors give the green light.
“He has entered the final stages of rehabilitation with a team of medical and sports science today, and start practicing with the team starting today. It remains to restore his fitness and play time,” said Rodgers.
“We’ll see how it is for Tuesday. If he is not ready to fight Tuesday, then he will certainly be able to play next week against West Ham,” said Rodgers.
