Adam Lallana: The Liverpool player who silently went about his job

Liverpool have become the champions of England. Every player, big or small, have played their part in this historic feat, and for that, Jurgen Klopp will remain forever grateful.

The English Premier League season is only weeks from drawing to a close, which would mark the beginning of the 2020-21 summer transfer window.

Like most clubs, the Reds, too, are preparing for arrivals and departures, hoping to strengthen their squad in key areas.

Today, however, isn’t about speculation and rumours. It’s about taking a look at one of Liverpool’s outgoing stars — Adam Lallana

Adam Lallana’s time at Liverpool

Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the England international will be wearing a different kit in the upcoming campaign.

He signed a short-term extension to remain at the club for the remainder of the season, but will not be extending his stay at Anfield.

As he has run out of contract, Liverpool won’t be getting anything from his transfer and have to let him move to another club, most probably Leicester City, as a free agent.

Adam Lallana hasn’t been included in the squad since the restart, and Klopp has insisted that he won’t risk an injury before his impending transfer.

During his time at Liverpool, Lallana has experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

Yes, he hasn’t managed to emerge as one of Liverpool’s best performers, but he hasn’t been a slouch either.

He’s just a good player at a great club who always gave his all to become a part of the legacy.

Signed from Southampton in the summer of 2014 by then-Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers, Adam Lallana was meant to bring a dash of creativity in the middle of the pitch.

He took a while to settle in, but he did manage to make an impression in his debut season at Anfield.

After missing the first few games of the season with a knee injury, Adam Lallana made his Premier League debut for the Reds in a 0-1 home defeat to Aston Villa.

His next two outings, against West Ham and Everton, ended in a defeat and a draw, respectively.

Winless in three consecutive Premier League fixtures, Lallana took matters into his own hand in the fourth match.

He scored Liverpool’s opener on the night, which eventually helped the Reds seal a 2-1 win.

His first brace for the Merseysiders came in December, in a 4-1 home win over Swansea. 

Arguably, his most memorable and exciting moment under Jurgen Klopp came in January 2016, when he made a telling impact in an action-packed encounter against Norwich City.

The match was delicately poised at 4-4 when the second-half substitute scored the winner in injury time.

A month later, he experienced one of the lowest points  — if not the lowest — of his Liverpool career when he missed a decisive spot-kick against Manchester City in the League Cup final, aiding the Citizens’ triumph.

Just ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, Adam Lallana suffered a nasty hamstring injury, which ruled him out for the next three months.

Again in March, he picked up another injury that ruled him out for several weeks.

He finished the season with only 15 appearances, without finding the back of the net. The next campaign, — 2018-19 — was more of the same.

He only made 16 appearances across all competitions and once again failed to find the back of the net.

This season, Adam Lallana has made 22 appearances in all competitions and scored a crucial goal — the equalizer in the 1-1 Premier League draw with Manchester United in October last year.

Adam Lallana didn’t create a legacy at Liverpool — it’s difficult to, with so many superstars around. He hardly scored or assisted, hardly emerged as the hero of the match.

What he did possess, however, was unmatched commitment and obedience. Irrespective of when he came on, he always gave his all, tried to make a positive impact.

He was one of Liverpool’s finest squad players, one who’d will be sorely missed. Hopefully, the 32-year-old will get a more prominent role at his next club.

Hopefully, he’ll once again get to spread his wings, show his class and quality. Hopefully, he’ll be able to enjoy his football before calling it a day, once and for all.
