Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge has admitted that injuries are the worst thing that can happen to a footballer but claims it’s just part of God’s plan and all he can do is move on.
The striker, whose career has been plagued by injuries, has only made 22 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside team this season. Firstly, he was out from August to September with a hip injury, then from October to November because of an edema in his knee, and finally from December to February with a hamstring injury.
Since his return, the 26-year-old has managed to set six goals and has worked his way back into the starting XI.
Speaking recently about his injury woes ahead of Liverpool’s Europa League clash against Villarreal, Sturridge shed some light on how difficult it can be to deal with.
“It’s extremely frustrating,” he said to Sport Magazine. “It’s the worst thing in the world to not be able to do your job, something you love. But that was God’s plan – I just look to the future now.”
It’s unclear whether the England international will get the nod for the Reds’ European match, although current form suggests so.by
