Daniel Sturridge made light of his injury after hobbling off during Liverpool’s 3-0 Audi Cup win over Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening.
The England striker came on in the 67th minute with his side 2-0 up thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and new signing Mohamed Salah and he chipped in a fine third only to hurt his thigh at the Allianz Arena.
He was substituted three minutes later and although manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his concerns after the match, Sturridge was more upbeat on his own condition.
He told Liverpool’s website: “I think it’s just fatigue to be honest, so I’ll be OK.
“I’m feeling great. I have put in the work, I trained a lot in the summer. I’ve not missed many sessions here, they have looked after me. We’ve done triple sessions and I have trained almost every single session.
“So I’m feeling great, the best I have felt for a while. I am looking forward to the season and hopefully we can have some success.”
Sturridge most recently struggled with hip injuries during the 2016/17 season, and missed a large chunk of the previous two seasons with hamstring problems.
Asked about the seriousness of Sturridge’s injury, Klopp said: “I can’t say. He has prepared really well. I just hope he can play really soon.
“The goal was great and he had a chance just before that. You could see how fast he is. It’s a shame and I hope it’s nothing serious.”
Just earlier this week, Adam Lallana said Sturridge was “world class” and it would be like two new signings for Liverpool if he can stay fit.Euro Soccer Bonus
