Daniel Sturridge sends great news to Liverpool fans on Twitter

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has returned to first-team training this weekend.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge returned to first-team training at Melwood this weekend, and the England international was quick to express his delight on his official Twitter account.

The 25-year-old has been out of action since August, the prolific front-man forced to watch as his side endured a tricky start to the campaign before showing signs of resurgence early in 2015.

Liverpool could only draw 0-0 with Bolton Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, but the Reds are doing much better in the Premier League than they were just a few short weeks ago, while Brendan Rodgers’ side also take on Chelsea in the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final next week.

How they could do with Sturridge for that match, and while it may come too soon for him, the forward wrote on Twitter, “First day of training today with the boys. I’m a happy man.”

The players tasked with scoring goals in Sturridge’s absence have not always been up to the task, and it will be interesting to see just how much better Liverpool fare when their much-needed front-man is back in action once more.
