Daniel Sturridge runs rule over Liverpool’s ‘very intense’ Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge discusses his impression of new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp

Daniel Sturridge says he was struck by Jurgen Klopp’s intensity during the Liverpool manager’s first training sessions at Melwood.

The Reds striker was an unused substitute in Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over his former club Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.

He’s very involved, he’s all-action, he’s very intense and he wants you to perform at your best level every day in training as well

Sturridge hasn’t featured for the Merseyside outfit under Brendan Rodgers’s successor Jurgen Klopp after his last appearance came in October’s Merseyside derby.

However, the Liverpool forward has still been impressed with Klopp’s impact despite his limited time on the training field in recent weeks.

“I’ve been very impressed. He came in and over the first week – which I was training in – he put his style on us pretty much straight away,” Sturridge told Liverpool’s website.

“He trains you exactly how he wants you to play, in terms of he’s very involved, he’s all-action, he’s very intense and he wants you to perform at your best level every day in training as well.

“That’s what everyone does on the training field – gives 100 per cent every day and goes into the games with the same mentality.”

Sturridge missed Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over Manchester City at Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Sturridge scored a brilliant brace in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at Anfield in September.

The Reds forward moved to Liverpool in a £12m deal from defending Premier League champions Chelsea in January 2013.
