Report says Sturridge & Klopp have fallen out – fans love Sturridge’s reply on Twitter

Has anyone ever been relegated and won the Champions League in the same season?

We very much doubt it.

But that could happen to Daniel Sturridge this season…technically.

Sturridge moved on loan from Liverpool to West Brom in January but, after the spell was plagued by injury, only managed five games.

He did very little to help the Baggies in their unsuccessful attempt to escape relegation.

While he suffered relegation with his loan club, his parent club have been preparing for the Champions League final.

And Sturridge will surely be due a medal if they beat Real Madrid in Kiev having appeared five times in the competition this season, scoring once.

However, an unsubstantiated report from ‘Anfield Edition’ claimed on Monday night that his relationship with Jurgen Klopp has “turned sour.”

The ‘exclusive’ report states: “Daniel Sturridge and Jurgen Klopp’s relationship has turned sour after he did not receive an invitation to the Champions League final in Kyiv on Saturday, a source close to Daniel Sturridge has revealed.

“Naby Keita, who isn’t even a Liverpool player yet, has an open invitation to the Champions League final on Saturday.

“Sturridge has also been left out of Liverpool’s scheduled bus parade which is set to happen on 27th May, providing the Reds’ are successful in Kyiv of course.

“Sturridge’s loan spell is up at West Brom, yet hasn’t once been contacted by Klopp. The England international feels majorly let down.”

However, Sturridge moved quickly to pour cold water on this report.

He tweeted: “Spoke to the boss and Michael Edwards over the couple of days and wished them good luck for the final. Wished my team mates good luck after the semis and this week. #ynwa #redordead”

Brilliant. That’s how you deal with fake news.

And Liverpool fans were loving Sturridge’s response.

Check out the reaction on Twitter:

While Sturridge’s relationship with Klopp may not have “turned sour,” it’s looking increasingly unlikely that he’ll be a Liverpool player next season.

With Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino running riot this season, Sturridge will have to accept to play second-fiddle once again next campaign if he wants to stay.

But Klopp will most likely want to offload him to free up some wages for potential incomings.
