Video: Daniel Sturridge posts injury recovery update – “Feeling like I’m back”

Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge provided another video update as he continues his recovery from surgery, saying that he is “feeling like I’m back”.

The 25-year-old hasn’t featured for the Reds since April and underwent hip surgery in New York in May. He was originally pencilled in for a return in October, but is now expected to return in September.

The England international has continued extensive rehabilitation work over in the United States over the past three months and will return to Merseyside later this month.

It’s hoped that the latest surgery will fix the ongoing issues that have seen Sturridge pick up 15 injuries since joining the club in January 2013.

Liverpool fans will be excited at the thought of having Sturridge back to compete with and work alongside new signings Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino in a new look attack for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Sturridge scored 24 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions for the club in 2013/14.
