Brendan Rodgers thrilled to have Adam Lallana back for Liverpool
Brendan Rodgers is delighted to have Adam Lallana back available ahead of Liverpool's trip to Tottenham
Brendan Rodgers admits that he is delighted to have Adam Lallana back available ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
The England international is yet to feature for his new club following his transfer from Southampton this summer due to a knee injury.
Adam will definitely be in the squad because he looks great
But Rodgers has revealed that the 26-year-old is in line to make his Reds debut at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
“He’s a big talent with a great personality,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.
“He’s ideal for what we’re doing here. Unfortunately, he wasn’t ready for the England squad this time around but he’s a wonderful player.
“He’s come in here as the captain of Southampton. He’s a good character and has outstanding football ability. I think the supporters will see that over this season but we can’t rush him. He has been out a long time.
“Adam will definitely be in the squad because he looks great. He’s obviously short of match fitness but that’s the only thing missing. His quality and technical ability in training has been outstanding.”
