Daniel Sturridge has no issue with Jurgen Klopp, Michael Edwards or anyone at Liverpool, despite the fact he’s not going to be involved in the Champions League Final due to his January loan move to West Brom.
The English striker, still one of the most talented around when he’s fit and firing, has been deemed surplus to requirements by Klopp due to his inability to stay fit or adapt to the tactical demands our German manager insists upon.
A report in Anfield Edition suggested Sturridge and Klopp are no longer on speaking terms, but with typical class, the forward denied this and wished his former team-mates luck for Saturday’s Kiev clash.

Sturridge will not be a Liverpool player next season, but he’ll be thought of fondly by everyone at Liverpool.
At his best, during 2013/14, he was almost unstoppable, and the injuries which have plagued his career should not be used as a stick to beat him.
He’s not a Klopp player and the boss is far more important to our short and long-term development than Sturridge, but this doesn’t diminish his undeniable talent.
We hope he gets the right move for his career before 2018/19 and shows everyone his best level once again.
