Jurgen Klopp happy for Hodgson to select Liverpool star despite injury risk

The Kop star, called up last week by Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson for the matches against Germany and Holland, was at the centre of a blazing row last season.

Brendan Rodgers was fuming when £12million Sturridge, 26, came back crocked from international duty.

The then-Liverpool boss claimed the thigh injury the former Chelsea star picked up in training “could have been preventable”.

In the fall-out that followed, Hodgson was forced to deny that club and country were at loggerheads over the issue.

But current Reds boss Klopp has given his blessing to Sturridge’s call-up for the friendlies.

And he expects no special treatment despite the forward’s poor injury record at Anfield.
