Sturridge sends praise on Liverpool manager Klopp
Daniel Sturridge has sent praise on his former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Sturridge was part of the 2013/2014 Liverpool side which famously missed out on the Premier League title.
The England international scored 25 times and registered 10 assists in 90 games under the German coach. Injuries cost the international a prolonged career at Anfield and across English football.
He was most recently playing for Trabzonspor in Turkey. However, the ace had his deal terminated after he received a four-month suspension relating to betting charges.
Appearing on the High-Performance podcast, as per Liverpool Echo, the 31-year-old labelled Klopp a ‘great manager’.
When talking about his ex-manager, Sturridge said: “Jurgen was a great manager, he’s different to all the others, and I didn’t play as much under him, but I learnt a lot and we had a very good relationship, especially towards the end.”
“That last season the relationship I had with Jurgen was unbelievable and I’ve got nothing but love and respect for him, not only for what he’s achieved at Liverpool but for the relationship we have today.”
TBR View: Oh what could’ve been for Sturridge at Liverpool amid Klopp praise
Sturridge could’ve enjoyed a sensational career at Liverpool amid his praise of Klopp.
His injury hell was a sad way to watch such a talented player diminish into the shadows.
The ace’s partnership with Luis Suarez was one of the most frightening English football has ever seen.
And he scored some crucial goals for Liverpool during his somewhat glittering career in Merseyside.
However, he’ll probably be remembered for his stunning finish in the Europa League final.
The 31-year-old’s strike with the outside of the foot was one of his best goals ever.
Sturridge must look back at him time in the northeast with a wide smile. But, if not for injuries, the player could’ve enjoyed a wonderful career at Anfield.
