TalkSport host and friend of Brendan Rodgers, Alan Brazil has suggested the Liverpool boss is starting to lose patience with the injury situation regarding Daniel Sturridge.
The 25-year-old is waiting for results on a scan for a calf injury picked up in training on Monday, with suggestions the forward could now be ruled out until Christmas.
Sturridge has missed Liverpool’s last 14 matches in all competitions, having first suffered a thigh injury in training with the England squad in September.
He was scheduled back for the middle of October, before suffering a calf strain in training.
And Sturridge made it an unwanted hat-trick when he limped out of Liverpool training on Monday ahead of the weekend’s trip to Crystal Palace.
In conversation with co-host Mike Parry, Brazil said: ‘I have heard that the staff, I won’t say who but, are getting just a little bit fed up of what is going on there with Sturridge.’
Parry replied: ‘Erm, the staff, Al? You are going to have to tell us a little bit more about that. That’s just a taster.’
Brazil, who is friends with Rodgers, then said: ‘Well, let’s put it this way. I think Brendan is very, very upset… I mean, what is going on here? Why is he always injured?’
