Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi appeared in a humorous advertisement for the new 917 coach to Anfield.
After rumours in recent days claiming that Daniel Sturridge is unhappy, it would seem as though Liverpool’s public relations team came up with an idea to show the pair working together closely behind the scenes.
With Anfield set to showcase its first Premier League game of the season against Leicester in 10 days, Sturridge and Origi were sent to make a video promoting the new coach that will take fans to and from Anfield.
Liverpool has partnered with Stagecoach Bus to deliver the 917, an express bus service which, on matchdays will run every 10 minutes to and from the stadium.
It’s not surprising Sturridge was asked to do this promo given he’s used to parking the bus with Chelsea.
“The 917 service will depart from St John’s Lane (opposite Lime Street Station) and will be ready to leave from Walton Breck Road after the final whistle,” according to Liverpool’s official website.
Andrew Parkinson, operations director at Liverpool FC, said, “The 917 is a great initiative for fans which will provide safe and efficient transport to and from Anfield Stadium.”
Elisabeth Tasker, managing director of Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said, “We’re delighted to be providing fans with a quick, comfortable and reliable service to and from Anfield.
“Matchdays attract LFC fans from all over the world, so it’s great to be able to offer home and away fans an affordable and sustainable transport option that allows them to get into the spirit of the game as soon as they board the bus.”
