Jürgen Klopp has gone back on his word to never give his Liverpool squad time off during the season after allowing them a few days' rest during the global break in an effort to combat the rigours of the Premier League.
With Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino firing on all cylinders in attack, the 27-year-old has failed to play an entire 90 minutes in the Premier League in 2016/17, and is still looking for his first league goal.
"It's very tactical-based", the England global said, via the Liverpool Echo.
"I don't need a break but we won't have a lot of players here", Klopp said. You need to be focused. Not all of them can go wherever they want because if you're a bit injured you have to be here.
He said: "It's very tactical, preparing for the opposition".
Klopp sessions 'very tactical' - Sturridge
In football, not may clubs do double sessions during the season but we have the opportunity to do it with no Europe and we can use that time.
Liverpool are in first place in the Premier League table and a point ahead of second-placed Chelsea. "It's more relaxed. The second session is more intense". It can make or break your life.
"Have belief in yourself, work on your weaknesses and never give up. Our story started a few months ago so you can not compare us with anyone else". "Unless you are that one diamond shining amongst the dirt you won't get noticed".
Sturridge was speaking to students from the Liverpool FC Foundation College and he told them: "If you're going to be a coach, be a good man manager".
The former Chelsea forward, who is part of Gareth Southgate's England squad to face Scotland and Spain, detailed the manager's unique methods, with common drills such as five-a-side matches banished and double sessions also introduced at Melwood. You need to gain the respect of your players. "Gain that trust and then players will do anything for you".
Scotland Seeks Its Parliament's Intervention Before Brexit Talks Proceed
