The former Liverpool star has found a new home after more than a year away from football
Daniel Sturridge has signed for A-League team Perth Glory, the club announced on Thursday.
He hasn’t competed in professional match since 2020 amid injury concerns and a betting rule violation.
Now healthy, the 32-year-old will look to excite in Australia, where officials are calling him one of the nation’s biggest signings.
What has been said?
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to try a new challenge,” Sturridge said in a statement posted to the club’s official website.
“When the opportunity came about, it felt like the right thing to do, to take my talent somewhere where I can enjoy my football in a competitive league and try and help the team be as successful as they possibly can be.
“I’m going to put my best foot forward, work hard and try and help the team win each game that comes by and then we’ll see where we end up when the season finishes.
“I can’t wait to play at HBF Park and hopefully put a smile on a lot of faces.”
More to come.
