1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING:

“Now we can say it’s not that serious but it’s not possible to only go on as before, so we always have to react to the situation. That is completely normal after a long injury. If you think about the whole of last year, he made only three games, against Aston Villa with the two goals and another two goals in this season, right? Yes, and last season with the surgery on the hip and all those, so it’s a really long period. Now we have to stay patient I’m sorry to say. Sorry for you, sorry for me, sorry for him. But that is how the situation is.”

STORY: Liverpool will be patient with Daniel Sturridge after the striker suffered a foot problem in training hours before Thursday’s (November 26) Europa League win over French side Bordeaux, says manager Juergen Klopp.

Injuries have restricted Sturridge to three games this season.

The striker had been due to play on Thursday — for the first time since Oct. 4 — until he picked up the knock in training.

The 26-year-old’s latest setback is not serious, Klopp says, but Sturridge will be given time to recover.

“Now we can say it’s not that serious but it’s not possible to only go on as before, so we always have to react to the situation. That is completely normal after a long injury,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Sunday’s (November 29) Premier League clash against an out-of-sorts Swansea City.

“Now we have to stay patient I’m sorry to say. Sorry for you, sorry for me, sorry for him. But that is how the situation is,” he added.

The 48-year-old German said Sturridge’s absence will not leave him short in attack, with Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino all available.

The Reds go into the game on the back of a 4-1 victory over Manchester City, but have been inconsistent at home, having won just twice in their last six home games in the league.

Liverpool, in ninth place, could climb to sixth by the end of the week if they win on Sunday.
