Liverpool marksman Daniel Sturridge could face lengthy spell on the sidelines following an impending surgery to correct/cure a chronic hip problem.
According a statement issued on the club official website, they believe the surgery will put an end to the re-occurring injury. Just last Tuesday, the 25-year-old underwent a corrective surgery in the USA that lasted for more than three hours.
As per the doctor’s prescription, Sturridge will require at least four months of rest and recuperation after which he can return to training. Giving the fact that the player will also require a six-week pre-season fitness program, he will out until the 11th month of the year.
However, even though Balotelli has refused to be potent, the uncheering news for the teeming fans of Liverpool is that they will be without the first choice striker. To compound their woes, Manchester United trumped Liverpool to the signature of Memphis Depay, he was also a target for Brendan Rodgers.
Sturridge has been labelled with so many names following his injury record – rather than continuing paying him; Rodgers should allow the player leave instead of investing hope in a unrealistic striker. The kop have become a low-scoring team and they will continue to struggle in attack as long as the player is allowed to remain as there is no real merit is keeping him.
After the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, the responsibility of scoring has been levelled on Sturridge, but his injury problems has seen him fall short of the expectation.
