Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has hip operation





Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has undergone surgery on a hip problem in the United States.

The 25-year-old's season had effectively been ended once the decision was made to send him to America for further investigation into his ongoing injury issues which have seen him miss the majority of this season. However, after undergoing surgery in New York the England international will now begin a programme of recovery and rehabilitation. "Just want to let the world know I've had a successful operation on my hip today and I want to thank God for allowing that to be possible," Sturridge wrote on Instagram.

"Onwards and upwards from here. Thanks for the support." He added on Twitter: "Today was a big day for me...Thank you Jesus. Hip operation was successful."
