Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed he has no concerns about Daniel Sturridge’s situation at the club, report the Independent.
The England international has suffered continual injuries in recent seasons and started only his second game of the season last night against Leicester City.
He helped the Reds romp to a 4-1 win over the Premier League champions, setting up Sadio Mane with a deft back-heel.
Still, the charismatic German coach has largely opted to use Roberto Firmino as a makeshift centre-forward in a fluid frontline during his time in charge at Anfield.
While the former Borussia Dortmund coach has admitted the 27-year-old is frustrated by his lack of starts, there is no real problem between the two.
His injuries have taken a toll on his international standing, with the likes of Harry Kane emerging as more frequent options for the Three Lions.
However, with more performances strung together like that, the former Chelsea and Manchester City man can establish himself once more.
”I don’t have for one second a problem with Daniel Sturridge,” said Klopp.
“Since I am here we always speak about Daniel Sturridge. I have to make decisions, and I don’t make decisions because of transfer windows with the line-up.”
“But really with Daniel there was not one second a problem that he’s not happy when he doesn’t start. I think a player has to be like this. That’s no problem.”
