Klopp: Sturridge Not Guaranteed Game Time

Jurgen Klopp has stated that Daniel Sturridge is not assured game time, even if he stays at Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge is looking for an exit away from Liverpool, after limited playing time this season.

Klopp says he could not guarantee the England international forward playing time.

“I have never in my life promised a player game time for the next few months. It is not possible. We have mentioned all the things like it was so far,” the German told UK newspapers.

“When Daniel is fit, training in shape he is still an outstanding striker there is no doubt about that. But he did not play the last few weeks – for different reasons.

“Of course one of them was Roberto Firmino’s performance, then Dom Solanke’s development. And Daniel was in and out of training.

“In general more in than out in training, but the time he was in he was a little unlucky with games. That was the situation, not more.”
