Daniel Sturridge took to social media on Tuesday night to reveal that the Liverpool striker has undergone a successful hip operation.

The England international has struggled with injuries to his calf and thigh this season and has also been suffering from a hip problem.

Sturridge has been limited to just seven Premier League starts for Brendan Rodgers’ men this term after missing most of the first half of the season due to injury.

Now, the 25-year-old has had a successful operation as he bids to recover in time for next season.

Sturridge posted the picture above of himself in a hospital bed on Tuesday evening and wrote: “Just want to let the world know I’ve had a successful operation on my hip today and I want to thank God for allowing that to be possible. Onwards and upwards from here. Thanks for the support. Daniel x”

Sturridge has scored four goals and made one assist in 12 Premier League games for the Merseyside outfit this season.

His last appearance for Liverpool came in the 1-0 FA Cup win over Blackburn Rovers at the start of April.

Liverpool are currently fifth in the Premier League.
