Manchester City striker Danny Sturridge is happy with the progress he's making from a hip injury.
"Everything's going to plan so far, hopefully I'll keep improving as the days and weeks go by, and as soon as I'm back playing I hope to make an impression. I don't think there's anyone who wants to play football more than me, I'm determined to get back stronger, faster and fitter than I was before."
Sturridge is not back in full training with the rest of the squad as yet, but he has explained what the backroom staff at Carrington have had him doing of late.
"I'm working with the physios, doing a lot of running work because I did not have a pre-season, I'm just feeling my way back at the moment. There's weights work as well - upper and lower body work, and core work also. I'm working Monday through to Saturday, maybe going outside a couple of times a week, but I'm also doing bike and rowing sessions indoors here at Carrington."
