Coming out of the tunnel at Brighton on Saturday, Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge was greeted by fans with out-outstretched hands calling his name.
Seemingly deep in conversation with a coach walking alongside him, the player appears to greet the fans but keeps his hands firmly down by his sides – an indication there would be no high-fives today.
As the 28-year-old, who turned out to be an unused substitute on the day, walks past them and onto the pitch, one of the supporters calls out:
C’mon… we pay your wages!
He turns back and gives them a look as the fans laugh.
Liverpool won 1-5 at the Amex.
