Can Adam Lallana Repeat His Southampton Form Next Season At Liverpool?



When Jurgen Klopp arrived on Merseyside, many players were perceived as they wont make the cut under Klopp’s strenuous methods and tough training regimes. The players looked a little lost at first, but gradually made progress just as the manager who got used to the pace of English football. It paid dividends in his first eight months as the reds played in two cup finals but failed to take that elusive one last step to take the trophy home and the inexperience of the squad and the bad luck of the German in cup finals took its toll.

The players who were bought for a big price weren’t actually performing that well under Rodgers and the fans were calling for their heads earlier have now made them their darling. Joe Allen, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana were all labelled flops at first, but look at them now and Klopp’s effect can be seen practically. Lovren is finally looking like £20 million defender and Joe Allen has done enough to earn himself a new contract.

Adam Lallana arrived after a highly successful season at Southampton, but failed to live up to the expectations at Anfield. Agreed, his first season would have required some settling period but in his second season too, he was not looking like the part and the £25 million player that could bring the winning days back at Anfield. He was fighting for his future when Klopp arrived and the German’s arrival came as a blessing for the 28 year old as Klopp could really use his work rate in a fine way and also Lallana’s contribution to the team increased manifolds under him.

Adam Lallana can definitely be said as a legend at St. Mary’s because his contribution for the Saints was unparalleled. People refer to Jamie Vardy’s story, but Lallana’s story is also fascinating. The rise from League 1 to Premier League then to one of the best clubs in the world and then representing his country at the World Cup and now the Euros. He was the captain of Southampton when they returned to the Premier League and the true supporters would never boo him like some of them did last campaign.

He was targeted by the reds after he played some brilliant football and players with such ability to play equally good with two feet just cannot be ignored. Lallana was player of the year in 2014 for the Saints and scored some crucial goals at crucial moments. Now, Adam Lallana is starting for the three lions at the Euros and also has a coach at the club level that believes in him and the 28 year old can finally reach the heights that he showed glimpses of at Southampton and become an integral member in the Klopp revolution.
