Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge is excited ahead of his prospects this season.

Sturridge insists he's no "sulk".

"I've had an opportunity with Liverpool to show what I can do. You can only express who you are on the field," Sturridge told The Times.

"In the past I might have come across as a sulky person, but I'm just very driven and keep myself to myself.

"I am very approachable. I always show the fans love and respect, but I'm not loud when it comes to football.

"You have to be ruthless but you don't have to be selfish. When I was playing with Chelsea, I spoke to Didier Drogba, a legend at the club. He told me that when you give you get. You don't give to receive; it just happens that way.

"The most important thing is the relationship with your teammates. I like to get assists. It's not about glory, it's about being part of a successful unit."
