I’m loving life on Merseyside, insists Liverpool’s Charlie Adam
Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam insists he is enjoying life on Merseyside despite a disappointing end to the season
Charlie Adam has insisted he is enjoying life at Liverpool despite a disappointing end to the season for the Scotland international.
The 26-year-old completed a reported £7m move from Blackpool to Liverpool last summer and made 35 appearances before suffering a season-ending injury in a 3-2 defeat at Queens Park Rangers.
But Adam, who signed by former manager Kenny Dalglish, feels settled on Merseyside and claims he has grown accustomed to playing for a “big club”.
“I love this city,” Adam told Liverpool’s website. “The Liverpool people are similar to Scottish people in so many ways. They’re so warm and welcoming.
“The fans in the city and the people at this club have made me feel welcome and have made it easy for me. When you move to a big club, you are overawed at first but the staff make it easy for you.
“They’ve been great so far and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. You get a lot of fans coming up to you in the street and in the city, wanting to have autographs and pictures taken with you. And, to be honest, if they weren’t asking for that, as a player, you’d be worried!
“It’s been very easy to settle in and I think that’s shown on the pitch. Hopefully it can continue for a long time. The highlight of my career was signing that contract and since day one I’ve loved it.
“When you come to the club, you realise that it’s a big club but when we went to the Far East tour last summer it was just incredible.
“The turn-out for the games and the training was just unbelievable and that just shows the type of club you are at.”
