Klopp unsure on Sturridge return

Jurgen Klopp is unsure when Daniel Sturridge will be fit to return for Liverpool after confirming the striker suffered a hamstring injury at the weekend.

Sturridge’s injury nightmare continued with another setback in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Newcastle United, with the England striker sustaining the problem after coming on as a substitute in his third appearance after returning from a knee issue.

And speaking ahead of Liverpool’s Europa League match against Sion on Thursday, manager Klopp said the 26-year-old is facing another spell on the sidelines.

“It’s a hamstring and it’s not easy to say when he can be back for us,” commented the German. 

“There are two different things we have to look at – the one thing is the injury and the other is how we can bring him into a shape that is not so intensive for him, so he needs to train.

“The good thing with the muscle injury is that early [on] he can start to run and to train – not football but all the other things he needs. If you look at his history in the last months, and maybe the last year, it’s not a long time he’s been able to train.

“With all the games [we have], we have to find the specific point when it’s possible to bring him [on] for minutes and what makes most sense for his general shape.

“I can’t say at this moment what we will do exactly, but we’ll have to look at it.”
