Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has denied that the club are looking to sell striker Daniel Sturridge, and has even admitted that the 26-year-old could play on Tuesday, The Guardian reports.
The 26-year-old has not played since December, and has since been linked with an exit after reports emerged claiming that he had taken exception to the criticism he’d received for his ongoing injury problems.
However, Klopp has denied that Sturridge is looking unsettled and looking to leave.
“After a long, long break it is not possible that anyone can think about this, because nothing has been said.
“I answered a few questions at a time when he was not fit.
“He has been training for two days. I don’t go over and ask ‘Daniel, I hear you want to leave’.
“I’ve had a normal relationship with Daniel. The problem is I’ve only had him ten or 12 times on the training pitch.”
