Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has been speaking about slowly playing and training his way into form following the injury that delayed his start to life as a Reds star.
The England international arrived from Southampton this summer but he had to wait until the fourth match of Liverpool’s Premier League campaign to make a substitute appearance against Aston Villa.
Lallana has gone on to make 11 further appearances for the Reds so far this season and speaking to the club’s official magazine he revealed that he is getting back to full fitness and form.
In quotes later published by Liverpool’s official website, the 26-year-old said of his new teammates, “The more we train together the more we learn each other’s games.
“It’s a privilege to be on the same pitch with them because there’s some unbelievable talent there.”
Lallana went on to say that he is still approaching his best form but that he should not be too far away from rediscovering the performances that prompted Brendan Rodgers to pay big for him in the summer.
“Gradually, the more games I’ve played and the more minutes I’ve accumulated my form has improved…” he said.
“There’s still an improvement to be made but I’m getting there.”
When he does, Liverpool will have an excellent player on their hands, and one they will rely on, in part, to get them back up the table after a faltering start to the campaign.
