Sturridge returns to Liverpool training

5 August 2013 16:39

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has returned to training following an injury he picked up in May.

The former Chelsea man sustained his ankle problem while on international duty during England's 1-1 friendly against the Republic of Ireland at Wembley.

As such, the 23-year-old missed his club's pre-season tour of Indonesia, Australia and Thailand but was involved in an open training session at Anfield on Monday.

Manager Brendan Rodgers was pleased to welcome Sturridge back, saying he has maintained his fitness over the close-season, despite not being involved in the tour.

"Thankfully Daniel had his first training session with the team and I thought he looked very, very sharp," he told the club's official website.

"He obviously had an injury at the end of the season which set him back, but he's worked very hard along with the medical guys who have done a great job with him.

"It's a great testament to him he's kept himself fit and it was just waiting for the right time to introduce him."

Liverpool are due to face Valerenga in a friendly on Wednesday, although Sturridge is not likely to feature.

Rodgers, though, revealed Sturridge does have a chance of playing in Saturday's match against Celtic in Dublin.
