The former Liverpool midfielder was not full of sympathy for the striker.
Liverpool's first game under the management of Jurgen Klopp ended in a 0-0 draw with a promising start to the game ending up in Liverpool holding on against Spurs.
Of course Klopp has not been helped going into the game with injury woes - especially up top.
Christian Benteke is still out of action whilst Danny Ings is out for the season with a recently picked up knee injury. The hope was Daniel Sturridge, who recently made his comeback from injury, would be back in action.
However he was ruled out again with his own knee injury.
It meant Liverpool played young Belgian Divock Origi up top and the former Lille man had a decent game in a difficult fixture.
It was news that was met with little sympathy from one former Liverpool player. Didi Hamann, who won the Champions League during his time as a Liverpool player, sent out this Tweet on the subject before kick-off:
What's wrong with Sturridge? Sore throat?— Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) October 17, 2015
Sturridge played just 18 times last season after suffering several muscular injuries throughout the campaign and the latest setback is likely to irk the Liverpool star once again.
