‘It’s up to the club the decide’
Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge has admitted it is up to the club to decide whether or not he stays at Anfield this summer.
Sturridge has been at Liverpool since 2013. His goals/games ratio has been superb, but he has never gone a full season completely fit. He has appeared to have tested the patience of Jurgen Klopp this season with the amount of games he has missed.
He has been linked with moves away but has proven his quality for the club in the last couple of fixtures, where he has started. West Ham are thought to be interested, as well as other Premier League clubs.
But Sturridge insists he is happy at Liverpool. He was not in the mood to discuss his future after helping the Reds book a spot in next season’s Champions League, as they beat Middlesbrough 3-0 yesterday.
“I would have liked to have played more but I am grateful to the club for the opportunities and the manager has been really nice to me,” Sturridge told Sky Sports.
Asked if he was going to be at the club next season, he added: “That is for the club to decide, for myself I am enjoying my football.
“My job is to go on the pitch and put my best foot forward.
“There is nothing to discuss really. I have two years left on my deal and I am happy here.”
Sturridge is under contract at Liverpool until 2019.
