Daniel Sturridge has said he has no desire to leave Liverpool and he feels 'something special' is on the horizon for the Merseyside club.

The striker has been linked with a move away from Anfield in recent times with plenty speculating on where his future lies, after being dropped a number of times by Jurgen Klopp while he struggles with injury. 

The English international has come out and rubbished the claims that he wants out of Liverpool, but does say he wants to see more game time. 

Yeah, of course I am happy here," Sturridge said.

"I'm happy. I'm happy. I have never expressed not being happy here. I think it is everyone playing Devil's Advocate.

"They see that I have been left out sometimes and they think 'maybe that means he is unhappy' but, at the end of the day, the manager has got a job to do.

"He has got to pick the team that he feels is best on the day. And I have got a job to do, which is to perform when I am playing.

"I have had the injuries and I have been in and out of the side in recent times but it has never been a case that I am not happy at the club.

"I am grateful to the club for giving me the chance to come here from Chelsea. I am grateful to Brendan for signing me as well.

"Now Jurgen has come in and he is giving me minutes on the pitch. You know - I could not be playing at all.

"But, of course, I want to be playing in every game. It's one of those things that you have to take on the chin."
