Sturridge warning to Klopp

England striker prepared to leave Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge has hinted that he would be prepared to leave Liverpool were manager Jurgen Klopp to continue to limit the England striker's playing time.

Sturridge has started only three of the Reds' last seven games.

Although stating that he is happy at Liverpool, the former Chelsea attacker is frustrated by his lack of pitch time at the Merseyside club.

"Maybe people don't see this, but I am someone who wants to play every minute of every match, so maybe when I'm not starting or when I'm taken off, it's hard to take," the 26-year-old said.

"You want to be on the pitch every single match, every single minute.

"It's exciting, of course, what the manager is bringing and where we are heading. I am doing everything in my power to be out there on the pitch, and I am feeling good as well."

However, Sturridge added: "I think any player who says, 'Oh yeah, this is the only team I will play for, for the rest of my life', they are deluded.

"In football, every team looks for replacements every single year. So, for myself, all I can do every weekend is go out there, perform to the best of my abilities.

“Then, come the end of the season, hopefully (I will) have the European Championship to look forward to."

Sturridge has an excellent strike rate at Liverpool, having scored 43 times in 67 appearances, but has also suffered several injury setbacks.
