Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has refused to single-out England international, Daniel Sturridge over his massive contribution to the Reds 2-1 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday.
Sturridge has recently been playing as a second fiddle to his team mate, Divock Origi in Liverpool’s big games, however he gained a start yesterday and crowded it with a goal and assist.
The manager of the side, Klopp described the striker has a “Brilliant player” but attributed the victory to the entire team as he thinks it’s was a collective effort.
“Nobody is undroppable. I never look at any player and think, ‘I can’t leave him out’. As a manager, I decide if I play with one, two, three or four strikers,” he told reporters.
“[Sturridge] really is in really good shape. Mental-wise and physical-wise it’s really good, and for us so important, because, for example, Roberto Firmino now has a problem after he was in perfect shape. He’s a brilliant player, [but] this is a game with 11 players. And we come to this. You are interested in one player.
“Each player had influence. I understand it as a team game. I enjoyed the game of Daniel Sturridge [but] we have a football game and you want to talk about one player at the first moment. That’s not the role I like. He was very good, but if you are not interested in the game…”
The England international has now scored six goals in eight Premier League starts this season.
