Video: Brendan Rodgers on Balotelli’s future and Sturridge’s return

Watch Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers discussing Mario Balotelli’s Liverpool future and Daniel Sturridge‘s long awaited return from injury, speaking at his pre-match press conference at Melwood on Monday morning ahead of the League Cup semi-final second leg with Chelsea on Tuesday night.

On Sturridge, Rodgers said: “He trained very very well, it was as comfortable as he’s looked, even when he was coming back before he was maybe a little but tentative but he looked back to normal.

“We’ll see how he is after today but if he isn’t ready for tomorrow we won’t risk it, that’s for sure.”
