Jurgen Klopp sends clear message to Liverpool FC’s forgotten man
Jurgen Klopp delivers the latest update on Daniel Sturridge's future at Liverpool FC
Jurgen Klopp has told Daniel Sturridge that he still has hope of reviving his Liverpool FC career.
The striker was loaned out to West Bromwich Albion for the second half of last season but the forward failed to impress during his brief stint at The Hawthorns.
Sturridge was not called up to the England squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia and he has since returned to Melwood to being pre-season training with his Liverpool FC team-mates.
The 28-year-old has inevitably been linked with a transfer away from Liverpool FC this summer due to his lack of playing time at Anfield in recent months.
Now, Klopp has insisted that Sturridge does have a future at Liverpool FC despite the lack of playing time for the England international recently.
Klopp is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “It’s funny, this is my third pre-season and every year we talk about the same things.
“It’s no problem. I always said there is a future, it’s about what we do in the moment.
“At the moment it’s all good and we don’t have to make decisions. I don’t think about my players like this – like, maybe he’s in or out.
“With the young ones we make these decisions but not with the other guys. They show up, and it should be easy for me in the end.
“The window is still open, right? Is it closing tomorrow? Good.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool FC completed their second signing of the summer on Friday when they tied up a deal to bring Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield from Stoke City.
The Reds will be aiming to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season after they finished in fourth place and without a trophy last term.
