Jurgen Klopp is waiting for scans to discover the extent of the 427th and latest injury sustained by Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge.

On his comeback from a knee injury suffered before Klopp’s tenure, Sturridge took part in full training on Wednesday after being named as a substitute against Manchester City last weekend.

However, the striker complained of a problem with his foot on Thursday morning as the club engaged in preparations for their Europa League clash against Bordeaux at Anfield, and was sent for scans as a result.

Klopp told BT Sport that he must wait for the result of said scans to discover how long Sturridge will be out for, if at all.

“I cannot say much about this, we trained in the morning and went to the hotel and he had to leave,” said the German. “We need to wait for the scan, at this moment I can’t say any more.”

The setback is Sturridge’s eight separate injury since joining Liverpool in January 2013, with the 26-year-old suffering the following knocks over the last two-and-a-half years:

  • Groin strain in February 2013
  • Torn ankle ligament in November 2013
  • Sprained ankle in December 2013
  • Thigh muscle strain in September 2014
  • Hamstring injury in November 2014
  • Hip injury in April 2015
  • Knee injury in October 2015

Sturridge, who has made 69 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions, has missed 58 games as a result of his injury record.
