Liverpool have confirmed Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno will leave the club this summer following their Champions League success. The Reds have decided not to renew their contracts and both are free to seek new clubs ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
Sturridge has been at Liverpool since January 2013, scoring 67 goals in 160 appearances for the club. Injuries have derailed his progress at Anfield, while Moreno has also been plagued by fitness setbacks and an ankle problem allowed Andrew Robertson to flourish at left-back.

The Spaniard has made 141 appearances for the English giants but he will now be free to speak to clubs ahead of a summer switch. Both players celebrated Saturday’s Champions League success and manager Jurgen Klopp has thanked the pair for their contribution.
He told the club’s official website: “The most important words to say to these two remarkable players is ‘thank you’. “They were here when I arrived as manager and during that period they – as much as anyone – helped to establish us as a team that would be heading in the right direction.
Without them we wouldn’t be the team and club we are in this moment. “I wish both players nothing but success and joy wherever their journey takes them next. Whoever has them next will be so lucky to have these outstanding personalities in their ranks. “We will miss them of course, but we can say farewell with the best words possible: Guys, you leave as European Champions.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
