Daniel Sturridge hints he could stay at Liverpool this season


‘I FEEL AT HOME’

Daniel Sturridge has appeared to suggest he could remain at Anfield and spent the 2018/19 season at Liverpool.

The injury-cursed striker has suffered a frustrating career, most recently being ruled out with a long-term hamstring injury while on loan at West Brom in February.

However, he is now back to fitness with the Reds in pre-season and seemingly happy with his current position.

“I’m enjoying myself and enjoying my football. I can’t ask for any more,” Sturridge told Liverpool’s club website.

“I love it here. I love the lads and the banter in the group is unbelievable. I feel at home again.”

“It doesn’t matter where I play or which role I’m in, as long as I’m out there and pushing myself to my limits. The minutes are important in pre-season, putting your best foot forward and working as hard as you can.”

Last season was another tough one for Sturridge, as his loan move to West Brom proved fruitless on the pitch.

However, off the field, the Englishman claims to have undergone serious development in recent times.

“It was important for me to get my head in the right place and evolve as a person. I had things that I needed to sort out with my family and things like that.

“I’m just happy to be back and to push myself and be part of the group again.

Looking forward, the 28-year-old was non-committal on his future ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

“My ambition is to train hard and work hard in pre-season.

“There are a lot of running sessions and a lot more pre-season games to go. And there’s no pressure. There are a lot of games during the season so it’s about giving your all when you get your minutes.

“I’m not putting any pressure on myself or the management or my teammates. It’s about enjoying myself. I’m part of an unbelievable group, we have a chance to be successful this season.

“Everybody is pulling together and being part of that unity – being together as one and trying to make this team successful – is what it’s all about.

“We want to win trophies and we want to be successful. It starts now and it’s a long season.

“It doesn’t matter whether you play the first game or the 50th game – as long as you’re involved in the journey that’s all that matters.”
