Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Daniel Sturridge has returned to the UK to undergo treatment on a hamstring injury.
The forward missed Liverpool’s 2-0 win over AC Milan in Charlotte on Saturday night, and will miss the final of the International Champions Cup with Manchester United on Saturday.
Rodgers confirmed: “Dan has flown back to the UK. He wasn’t going to be ready for the game on Monday – but there’s no concern there, he’ll be ready for Borussia Dortmund at the weekend.
“It was just best to get him back early, back to the training ground so he could get some treatment there.
“He had a really, really slight feeling in his hamstring. It’s nothing major.”
Sturridge has joined Jon Flanagan and sumer signing Adam Lallana in returning to Merseyside to work on their fitness ahead of the new season, after suffering injuries whilst in the States.
