Daniel Sturridge: Ex-Liverpool man pleads with fans after being targeted with lighters during Turkish Super Lig match
The striker, 30, posted a photo of himself removing the lighters during the Turkish Super Lig derby win at Antalyaspor.
But celebrations for Sturridge were marred by this incident and he took to social media to let fans know of his disappointment.
The former Liverpool man wrote: “Away game = 3 points, 2 assists oh and 3 lighters, yes that is 3 lighters in my hand.
“All jokes aside. Fans, please don’t throw things on the pitch. The players’ safety shouldn’t be in danger from the fans and vice versa.
“Rivalries in football are a big thing but it shouldn’t get to the level where you want to harm an opposition player.
