Everyone at Liverpool is ready to play their part in the Champions League final, Daniel Sturridge has told the official website.
Liverpool’s number 15 has been a bit-part player this season, but insists he’s ready to make an impact if required.
Whether he is utilised or not, it looks likely that this will be Sturridge’s final involvement at Liverpool.
Sturridge told Liverpoolfc.com: “To be successful you need to use the squad, everyone has a role to play.
“If you look over the years at finals that have been played, there have been players who have hardly played any games that have scored goals or won tournaments for their countries or won finals for their teams, players who aren’t on the pitch who come on and make a difference as well.
“So it’s important for everybody to be tuned in to everything that’s needed for the team to be successful.”
Despite showing promising form at the start of the season, Sturridge has failed to impress this term.
Injuries have played a massive part in his Liverpool career, hampering his chances after a brilliant start in red.
It’s been frustrating for Sturridge and for the fans as he’s never been able to recapture his form of 2013/14.
His chances have been very limited under Klopp, so his professional attitude is one that should be commended.
And he has been a loyal servant to the club during his six years at Anfield.
He has provided many moments of brilliance and lasting memories in a Liverpool shirt, too.
His goal against Chelsea this season, the 2013/14 season and his goal in the 2016 Europa League final come to mind.
Although he may not feature heavily, if at all, against Spurs, Sturridge deserves a good send off.
He will always be remembered as a nearly-man at Liverpool, and looks certain to move on this summer.
He’s out of contract and Klopp doesn’t look likely to offer him a fresh deal.
So what better way to sign off than with one more memorable moment by winning the Champions League.
