Daniel Sturridge recovering in LA

Liverpool v Borussia Dortmund - Pre Season Friendly
Liverpool have sent striker Daniel Sturridge to Los Angeles to continue his rehabilitation from the thigh injury which has sidelined him for most of the season.

The 25-year-old has not played for the club since August 31 after he initially strained a thigh during an England training session.

On the eve of his Liverpool comeback he pulled a calf muscle in his first full training session back with the first team and just when he appeared to have got over that he sustained another, 麻将机 different, thigh injury which has ruled him out until the new year.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers said last month that the club may have to look even deeper into the root of Sturridge’s problems.

This is the ninth separate, but similar, injury he has had in his career, with the player suggesting the issue may be hereditary as his father, a trainee at Birmingham, and two uncles Dean and Simon – both professional footballers – also suffered the same problems.

The striker has reportedly travelled to America to undergo warm-weather training and rehabilitation to help with his recovery for a fortnight. He has not gone to the United States to have any medical treatment or procedure.

“He has gone away to get some specific work in with some of our staff and he is coming along well,” said Rodgers.

Sturridge also posted about his recovery on Instagram.

“Don’t worry bout me.. People don’t count me out cause I got people counting on me. Working hard every day to get back fit… Just know…. I’ll be back stronger and better than ever!!”
