Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana says he was impressed with Jurgen Klopp’s first press conference as manager and admits he’s excited to start working with the German coach, the Daily Mail report.
Klopp made quite an impression in his Liverpool press conference, telling of his ideas to play full-throttle football and to build an exciting brand for the supporters to enjoy.
However, performances declined dramatically over the past 15 months and cost Brendan Rodgers his job.
In need of a real lift, Lallana feels Klopp is an astute appointment and told reporters for the Daily Mail how he’s looking forward to linking up with the former Borussia Dortmund manager.
“I’m very excited to work with him. I saw the press conference and the reaction he was getting and like everybody who was there I think it’s going to be an exciting time,” Lallana said.
“He came across very well. It was a good press conference. I’ve got one more game with England to worry about first, but I’ll be excited to get back to the club afterwards.”
Lallana was one of a few who suffered of late under Rodgers, featuring mainly in the Europa League and League Cup as inconsistent tactics and team selection hindered the side.
The midfielder will be keen to start a clean slate under Klopp, though with heavy competition for places and a raft of new faces linked in the press, like many, he could be a contender to be sold next summer if he does not perform.
