Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool striker had been linked with West Ham

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has returned to full training and could return to the first team within two weeks.

The England frontman has yet to feature under new boss Jurgen Klopp after he injured his knee in a training-ground collision with Jordan Ibe on the eve of Klopp’s first game at Tottenham on October 17.

Sturridge, 26, has been sidelined ever since, but he joined in full training with the non-international contingent at Melwood on Tuesday and is on the comeback trail.

It is unlikely that Klopp will deem Sturridge fit enough to make the squad against Manchester City on Saturday, with the German coach believed to want Sturridge to complete a 10-day training programme before he considers him for first-team duty.

For the last 15 months Sturridge’s career has stalled with a series of injuries to his calf, groin, hip and latterly his knee limiting his appearances.

In fact the former Chelsea man, who made 19 appearances last term, has played only three games this season and completed the 90 minutes only once – the 1-1 draw with Everton in early October.

The home game with Swansea on October 29 might well be the one pencilled in for Sturridge’s return.

    As I said on another thread the club won’t play Sturridge until he can complete 10 training sessions without breaking down.
    The next 5/6 months will be make or break for him.

    Ginger, is that a new measure put in place by Klopp’s team?

    I wonder how the 10 training session thing works and is spreaded over a 7 day week?

    Sturridge was expected to recover by the 21st, and I’m hoping he will be available for Saturday.

    As for the context, well gents, don’t say we weren’t warned by both Chelsea and City fans of his history with injuries.
