Daniel Sturridge showered with messages on Instagram after joining Trabzonspor

Premiership Picks

Daniel Sturridge is back in business.

Having secured a Champions League medal at the end of last season, the Englishman’s Liverpool career finished on a high. Now, following his release in the summer by Jurgen Klopp, he’s taken his left-footed talents east to compete in Turkey’s Super Lig.

Taking to his Instagram to announce the move, as so many footballers feel the need to do nowadays, the 29-year-old cracked a Turkish delight “joke” (if you can call it that) and expressed his anticipation for the upcoming season…
