Daniel Sturridge will head back across the Atlantic this summer as he continues to battle his long-standing injury concerns.
After a fantastic year last term, the striker’s season has been ravaged by time spent on the treatment table. The England international has found the back of the net on just four occasions in the Premier League.
Sturridge missed five months of the first-half of the campaign due to problems with both his thigh and calf, and spent much of the Christmas period in Boston, working with the medical team at the Red Sox, a baseball franchise also owned by FSG.
And while it appeared that Sturridge was starting to get back into regular first-team action, a hip injury – which was sustained during the FA Cup win against Blackburn – ended his season.
According to the Daily Star, with our season set to end without a flourish, the 25-year-old will now head back to the States to find out whether he requires surgery.
Let’s just hope he gets it sorted before next season. It’s beginning to drag for all involved – fans included.
