Daniel Sturridge is a fragile footballer. The Liverpool striker’s recent injury record is horrific.
So, Liverpool fans were understandably pretty concerned when they saw this photo of Kolo Toure lunging in on their sick-note striker shortly after his return to full training.
The picture was shared on the Facebook page of leading Liverpool fan blog Empire of the Kop.
Empire accompanied the pic with the caption: “NO! KOLO! NO!”.
After being live for just 45 minutes, the post had already been liked 800 times.
Liverpool supporters have been quick to comment too.
Amyrul Aziz wrote: “Be careful with the glass kolo..”
Kevin Parfitt added: “No No, No No No No Kolo No No, Kolo you will break him…”
Michael Wilson gave Sturridge a new nickname – “porcellin man”.
In fairness, Michael’s spelling is better than the banter of Mabasa James Nhlanhla, who wrote: “Hahahaha Daniel Glassridge”.
