Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has revealed to BBC Sport that all of his injury woes have made him a stronger person and athlete. The England striker was injured on international duty and picked up a further knock on his comeback, set to be ready in Novemeber, Sturridge once again injured his thigh in training. A recurring injury that will worry fans, however, Sturridge is remaining positive.
“Through all this I’m growing as a man and an athlete,” said the 25-year old, “Another door to break down. I’ll be back soon enough – strong and ready.”
Sturridge bagged 25 goals last season and was in fine form until his injury came along. Since then, he has had to see his club slump down the league after some poor performances and goal barren games. The signing of Mario Balotelli has failed to flatter the Reds faithful and they are all wishing their number 15 back into the first team as soon as possible.
The former Manchester City and Chelsea striker said, “Everybody goes through things in life that can make or break them,” he added. “This for me is another hurdle to jump over.”It seems Sturridge is finding it hard to come to terms with his recent injuries, but remains positive that the worst is behind him as he looks to regain full fitness and score goals for Liverpool once again.
In the meantime, Liverpool will continue to miss their superstar striker.
