Sturridge ‘happy to be back’

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has declared himself "happy to be back" as he steps up his anticipated return from a long injury lay-off.

The 24-year-old has not featured for the Reds since August 31 after a thigh strain sustained on England duty was followed by a calf problem picked up in his first session back with his club.

Having spent last week finishing off his rehabilitation sessions at Melwood the striker has now returned to training. “Training was class. Happy to be back,” Sturridge tweeted.
