Liverpool striker Sturridge eager to develop Balotelli partnership

Liverpool ace Daniel Sturridge is eager to form a strike-partnership with Mario Balotelli.

Sturridge insists he doesn't have a bad word to say about the Italian and that once he returns, the duo can recreate a partnership similar to his and Luis Suarez's last season.

He told talkSPORT: "We get on well off the field and in the changing rooms. We're always laughing and joking.

"Once I get back fit I'm hoping we can strike up a partnership. Last season with Luis [Suarez] we had a great relationship up front and scored a lot of goals. Hopefully this season it will be the same.

"He's a likeable person. I don't have any bad words to say about him. People don't realise what he's been through in his life to get where he is today."
