The Liverpool striker is saying goodbye to the team after six-and-a-half years with the Reds, and he loved every minute of it.

Daniel Sturridge’s contract is set to expire at the end of this month.

And after six-and-a-half seasons with Liverpool in the English Premier League, he’s saying goodbye.

“What can I say… It’s been one hell of a ride at this beautiful club,” he said to The Liverpool Echo.

“We were together for seven seasons and took a lil’ break in between.”

He added: “We had a lot of high and lows together but through it, all remained together knowing that one day we’d have to break up. That time is now.”

“I wanna say to the fans I love y’all. You made me feel so welcome and embraced me with open arms.”

“The Sturridge dance became famous at Anfield and I’ll never forget the first time I did it in front of the Kop,” he said.

“To my team-mates old and new, thank you for the memories – the banter was unreal. You all played a part in making me the man I am today.”

He explained: “This isn’t a goodbye cause Lord knows we’ll stay in touch no matter where I am, so speak soon.”

“To the current group of players just letting you know that Sturr crazy sauces will still be available next season so don’t stress yourselves out the lucky sauce will be back.”

“I’m so happy I was a part of the club’s sixth Champions League win because all the fans have deserved it for all the support they’ve given me and club during my tenure,” he added.

“I wish you all the best in the future and more success for the club.”

“Like I’ve always said it’s #redordead. Thank you for the memories. Much love, Daniel,” the player concluded.
