Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has revealed that the current Reds squad are pushing themselves to their limit ahead of a massive season for the Anfield club.
Jurgen Klopp has spent big this summer bringing in Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alisson and Xherdan Shaqiri, making them second favourites to challenge reigning Champions Manchester City and win their first ever Premier League crown.
One man who somewhat surprisingly looks to be part of Klopp’s plans for the upcoming campaign is Sturridge. The 28-year-old striker has never seemed to really fit in to his German coaches high-intensity style of play, and most observers had expected the England international to leave Anfield permanently this summer after he was loaned out to West Brom last January.
However, Sturridge has looked sharp in pre-season, with Klopp admitting he still has a Liverpool future, while the player also revealed that he has no regrets over his unsuccessful move to the Hawthorns.
“I don’t regret anything,” said Sturridge in quotes carried by Football365.
“The experience made me grow as a person. That is what it is all about. Evolving as a man, as a footballer. From the outside looking in, you can also improve.
“When you are on the inside looking out, you sometimes don’t see what you have to do to get to the next level, how you need to change.
“I have always been hungry. The hunger will never change. I’m taking every day as it comes with a positive mindset. I’m feeling great but it’s not just about me, it’s about the team. It’s about what we do as a bunch.
“Everyone is pushing themselves to the limit because we have got a big season ahead.
“We feel we can do something special, so we are all pushing ourselves. I have worked hard over the summer. I’ve put it in. But there is a lot more work still to come.”
