Video: Daniel Sturridge posts another injury return update – ‘Home time soon’

Daniel Sturridge continues his return from injury and has posted another video update of him working on his fitness in America.

“Feeling good right now. Home time soon,” he captioned the video update, which shows him receiving, finishing and sprinting – using the new Premier League football for this season.

The 25-year-old forward is due to return to Merseyside later this month, having worked on his rehabilitation in the United States since undergoing surgery on his hip in New York in May.

It’s hope the England international will return in September, with the match at Old Trafford on September 12th a possible return date.

A more likely return though is likely to arrive the following week, in the Europa League.

Sturridge’s return to fitness will see an interesting dilemma for Brendan Rodgers, who must decide whether to change his side’s shape in order to pair him alongside Christian Benteke.
