Text size Aa Aa

(Reuters) – Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will miss Wednesday’s pre-season Audi Cup final match against Atletico Madrid with a thigh injury but does not need a scan, the Premier League club said. Sturridge, who has been blighted by recurring hip, thigh and calf injuries over the past few seasons, felt a pain in his thigh after scoring Liverpool’s final goal in their 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on Tuesday and was substituted immediately. Liverpool said on their website (www.liverpoolfc.com) that the substitution was a precaution and they would continue to monitor the 27-year-old. “There are currently no plans for a scan to take place in Germany,” the club added. Sturridge said after the match that the injury was not serious and put it down to fatigue. Liverpool play Athletic Bilbao in their final pre-season match on Saturday before kicking off their Premier League campaign at Watford on Aug. 12.
