Adam Lallana: Wants players to work harder

Adam Lallana is paying little attention to the recent criticism of Liverpool as he prepares to make his comeback from injury against Bordeaux.

Brendan Rodgers has left several of his first-team stars at home for the Europa League opener in France, but Lallana is expected to feature after a month out injured.

“I’m fully fit now,” Lallana said.

“I trained on Friday, it was too soon for United at the weekend but after another three or four days good training I’m ready for Thursday night.

“It was frustrating to have another setback but as a footballer you have to deal with that. Hopefully I can now stay fit for the rest of the season.

“It was so disappointing to miss the last couple of games because as a senior member of the team I have not been there to help. I’m delighted to be back and now I want to help the team get some positive results over the coming days.”

Liverpool and Rodgers have come in for criticism following back-to-back defeats against West Ham and Manchester United, but Lallana has brushed aside the negativity and is confident of a turnaround before long.

“We’ve had a couple of bad results but that won’t continue,” Lallana added. “I’ve got an immense amount of confidence that results will turn. This (the Bordeaux game) is a good chance to start getting a bit of momentum back again.

“As a club we have got to stick together through the good times and the bad times.


“It is our job to play football and no matter how we do – good or bad – people are always going to have their opinions.

“At times it is best we just concentrate on doing our job and let people speculation as to whether it is good, bad or indifferent.

“We have to focus on our job and our next job is a tough game.

“We have to get a positive result and then it is a quick turnaround for the next Premier League game.

“We have to keep focusing on our job because at the end of the day that is all we can do.”
