Liverpool Injury Update: Rodgers Confirms Star Striker Set For January Return

Daniel Sturridge’s rehabilitation in the USA has gone well.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that star striker Daniel Sturridge’s rehabilitation in the USA has been a success and he is set for an imminent return to the Reds’ first team, report the Daily Star, with the England international potentially set to make his appearance back in the Liverpool starting line up before the end of January.

Sturridge has been missing since the start of the season with a succession of injuries, that saw Sturridge sent across the Atlantic Ocean to receive the finest specialist treatment available in Los Angeles, in a bid to ensure a return to action at Anfield that is as swift as possible.

The Reds have certainly missed the former Chelsea man in his absence, with current striking trio Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini having scored just a handful of goals between them this season as they have failed to replace the influence of Sturridge during his absence.

Rodgers, however, is confident that Sturridge will be back in action soon and ready to lead the line as Liverpool look to make a bid for a return to the Champions League qualification places during the closing stages of the campaign:

“He is back in the country to go into final stages of his rehab.”

“The work he has done in America has been fantastic, specialising in the rehabilitation and he will now come back, hopefully in some part of January.”
