Klopp believes Sturridge will fit for Euro 2016

Daniel Sturridge faced a huge injury blow form the starting of this season, but his new manager Jurgen Klopp still believes he can start for England in Euro 2016.

26-year-old Liverpool striker played an hour for his national team on the International friendly match against Netherlands. He also having a big threats to secure his permanent place in starting XI for England because of Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy.

Both players lifted their teams to the top level with brilliant individual performances. Wayne Rooney is also getting ready from injury and preparing to compete for his place in Euro 2016.

Klopp is supporting Sturridge instead of his injury blow and impressed with his training sessions too.

Klopp said ahead of Tottenham clash: “There are a lot of good strikers in England so congratulations for that,”

“If I say I wish Daniel could have a real holiday and doesn’t have to go to the European Championships, what kind of manager would I be?

“It is the European Championships and playing for your country is the best thing a player can do, and I really wish for him to be part of it.

“The situation here is the best situation since I have been here; he trained all sessions with the national team, he had 65 minutes against Netherlands and was absolutely okay.

“He is very important for us and hopefully he is fit until the end of the season and then I cannot make decisions for Roy Hodgson – that is his problem.

“But the better we play, together with him, the better the chances for our players to be part of a big tournament.”
