Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Daniel Sturridge’s future at Anfield will be reviewed at the end of the season along with the rest of the squad, with three others in danger of leaving too.
It’s been another tough season for the 27-year-old, as he has managed to start just five games in the Premier League so far this season, and has appeared in nine in total.
Injuries have once again been a problem, but with Klopp also preferring other options, the future for Sturridge on Merseyside looks bleak to say the least.
With over two years remaining on his contract at Anfield, there will be no panic over making a decision on his future, but ultimately Klopp has revealed that decisive talks will take place at the end of the season and it certainly sounds ominous for a player who has failed to feature regularly and has seemingly lost the faith of his manager.
“I have no idea what happens in the summer,” Klopp said, as reported by The Guardian. “It is not only Daniel but a lot of players.
“We will make decisions and speak about Daniel and any other players about what will happen at the end of the season. A lot of things will influence this and we can speak about it when it is time.”
Meanwhile, three other players are also explicitly mentioned in the report, as Lucas Leiva, Alberto Moreno and Emre Can also seemingly face uncertain futures.
Leiva’s contract expires this summer and so it’s more than likely he’s on the way out, while Can has yet to commit to a new deal despite the fact that there is just 16 months remaining on his current agreement with Liverpool.
In turn, there will certainly be some decisions to be made at Anfield at the end of what looks to be another disappointing campaign.
