It seems former Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge is going a tad stir crazy in quarantine, with the prized Perth Glory recruit struggling to make sense of being locked in a small hotel room when he's already double-dose vaccinated.
Sturridge touched down in Perth from England last Thursday and is halfway through the mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
Western Australia has some of the strictest border and quarantine rules in the world, and Sturridge vented some of his frustrations on Twitter.
"Still can't get my head around why I have to quarantine for 15 days when I'm COVID-free and vaccinated," Sturridge tweeted.
"I've literally been in my room for a week so far and took two COVID tests. I have antibodies. Rules are rules but I can't make sense of this. See you in eight days."
In a video on Instagram, Sturridge displayed the tiny area beside his bed that he has converted into his exercise space.
Sturridge has an exercise bike, some small dumbbells, a few other small exercise pieces and a soccer ball.
Perth coach Richard Garcia would love to give Sturridge at least some game time for the season opener, but the club will assess the striker's fitness before making a final decision.
"We want him to play some part in the first game and give him a taste of not only the whole crowd, but also playing with the team before we go away," Garcia said last month.
Glory owner Tony Sage is hopeful Sturridge's arrival will help give the club's membership base a huge boost, with Perth aiming to sign more than 10,000 members.
After taking on Adelaide, Glory will play their next eight A-League Men matches on the road.
They are then scheduled to host nine of the next 11 matches in Perth, but WA's border restrictions will determine whether those games can go ahead at HBF Park.
