London, May 8: Injury-stricken English footballer Daniel Sturridge has suffered a devastating blow as it emerged that he could be out of action until October.
The Liverpool striker had surgery on his left hip on Tuesday in New York but the severity of the problem means the 25-year-old will not be able to resume full training for four months, reports
This latest prognosis is a huge setback for Sturridge and his club mager Brendan Rodgers, piling pressure on Liverpool to sign a top-class striker this summer.
Sturridge’s recovery will rule him out of the big kick-off on August 8 and four games for England. It is possible he will not play in the Premier League until the beginning of October.
The surgery, which was performed by Dr Bryan T. Kelly, has been deemed a complete success by Liverpool’s medical staff as it addressed a problem believed to be linked to Sturridge suffering so many issues with a thigh muscle.
Having been beaten to the signing of 25 million pounds Memphis Depay by Manchester United, Liverpool will have to redouble their efforts to bring in a striker to provide the firepower they have lacked this season.
Liverpool have a move lined up for Burnley’s Danny Ings and promising Belgium intertiol Divock Origi will move to the club this summer after completing a year on loan at Lille. But magers Rodgers will need to recruit a high-class, experienced forward as well. IANS
