Liverpool boss explains Adam Lallana move


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has explained why he moved so quickly to bring Southampton skipper Adam Lallana to Anfield.

The Reds announced the signing of the 27-year-old today, becoming The Reds’ 3rd signing this summer.

Rodgers has re-iterated his desire to sign multi-dimensional signings that can cope with both the Premier League and Champions League next season.

He also has firm belief that Lallana can shine at Anfield,

“He is an exceptional young man and someone who has a love for the game – and, most importantly, a desire to progress and improve,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

Adam is motivated by being the best he can be and being part of something special. We believe he fits right in with what we are trying to do at Liverpool.

“We have seen, over the past two seasons in the Barclays Premier League, he has a tactical awareness to adapt to what is required of him and to put the team above his personal ambitions.

“He has leadership skills and personal qualities that make him a special commodity and I am delighted we have acted decisively to make sure he is wearing a Liverpool shirt next season.

“Adam is aware there will be great competition for places at this club and he is hungry to improve further. We are confident he will fit perfectly with the culture we have at Liverpool.
