‘He Has To Go’ ‘Time To Say Thank You And Goodbye’ Fans On Social Media React To Liverpool Star’s Comments On His Future

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana says he is happy to stay at Anfield this summer, despite his lack of games last season.

The 31-year-old made just 16 appearances in all competitions for the Reds and has just one year remaining on his contract. The midfielder says, though, he is ready to stay:

“I couldn’t be happier here, winning Champions Leagues. I know my ability and I know what I can give. And the gaffer and his staff and the recruitment guys have all made it clear they know I have a big part to play with what’s to come next, so I’m buzzing with that. No question my future is here and I can’t wait for what’s next.”

Fans on Twitter think Lallana would be better off leaving for first-team football rather than seeing out his final year:

When fit, the England international is a very decent squad player, but the major problem with him is his injury record.

Last season alone, Lallana had three spells out injured with groin and hamstring problems. Whether those issues have been fully resolved, it remains to be seen.

With just six starts, no goals and no assists to his name last campaign, the midfielder has become a peripheral figure despite having been a firm favourite during the early years of Jurgen Klopp‘s reign as manager.
