Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge insisted today that his future remains at Liverpool Football Club.
Sturridge joined Jurgen Klopp for today's pre-match press conference - ahead of the Augsburg game tomorrow evening.
There has been criticism of Sturridge's injury record - and rumours suggest that he wants to leave Anfield because of the stick he has received.
However, the forward denied these rumours:
"I think it is astonishing, disappointing - whoever is saying it - but that's football.
"I am very ambitious, very determined to help Liverpool have success.
"To say a player doesn't want to play is the biggest disrespect you could ever say to a footballer.
"I don't think anyone will understand how much it means to me to play football and I'll continue to do my best and focus on Liverpool.
"It's important to worry about the present. It has been a difficult time being injured but it is part of football and now I'm looking forward to the future, of course with Liverpool."
Liverpool host Augsburg tomorrow evening at 6pm - with the tie delicately balanced after a 0-0 in the first leg last week.
