Former England and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge’s latest attempt to resurrect his career has failed as his release from the Perth Glory club side. The 32-year-old joined the Australian club for the 2021-22 season but was released at the end of his contract following yet another injury-hit campaign.
Perth Glory Terminates Daniel Sturridge’s Contract
The former Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool striker started just one of the six games that he played and also failed to score. Perth Glory ended the campaign bottom of the 12-team A-League with four wins from 26 games. Daniel Sturridge spent six and a half seasons at Liverpool, and in the club, he scored 67 goals in 160 games before a loan move to West Brom for the second half of the 2017-18 season.
He moved to Turkey in the summer of 2019 as a free agent. His three-year deal with Trabzonspor was terminated the following March and he was given a four-month worldwide ban for breaching betting rules before his stint with Perth Glory. Daniel Sturridge has battled and struggled with injuries before the disappointing end to another bid to salvage a career that once saw him as Liverpool and England’s top striker.
