Daniel Sturridge gives fitness update to Liverpool fans, makes bold personal prediction

Daniel Sturridge has confirmed he is 'fit and ready to go'.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has told The Telegraph that he is 'fit and ready to go' - whilst predicting a 'great time' now he is back to fitness.

Sturridge, 26, almost fired Liverpool to the Premier League title just 18 months ago, having smashed 21 goals in 29 Premier League games in the 2013/14 season, only for the Reds to come up short of a historic title win.

The world was at Sturridge's feet after that point, but the major problem for the ex-Chelsea forward has been staying fit, as he has been plagued by a number of injury problems.

Just 17 appearances last term reaped only five goals, and his fitness issues have continued this term, having played just three games in all competitions.

Now though, Sturridge has told The Telegraph that he is ready to return ahead of this weekend's clash against his former club Manchester City, and is raring to go under new manager Jurgen Klopp, having failed to appear under the German so far.

Sturridge also predicts that this is going to be a 'great time' for him personally, suggesting that he is finally back to full fitness after an injury hell over the last year.

"I’m fit and ready to go and it’s going to be a great time for me," said Sturridge. "It’s been great under the new manager. I’ve been back training for the past couple of days and I was training when he first arrived."

"It’s an exciting time to be at the club and I’m enjoying working with him and the style of football. It’s important for us to understand what he wants us to do," he added.
