I'm fully fit and ready to help the team, says Adam Lallana

Published Add your comment

Liverpool forward Adam Lallana says he's fit and ready to help his side to a win against Bordeaux in their opening UEFA Europa League match on Thursday.

The Englishman has missed the Reds' last three games due to a thigh injury but insists he is now fit and looking forward to playing his first game in the Europa league.

"I'm fully fit now," Lallana said, according to the Independent.

"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."

Lallana's time at Liverpool has been largely disrupted by injury woes and the midfielder admitted to being frustrated by yet another setback in what is now his second season at the club.

"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."

With six of Liverpool's senior players rested for the game at the Stade Chaban-Delmas, Lallana should be given a chance to play and the 27-year old will be looking to shine on the night and hopefully provide the spark that Liverpool need to get their season back on track.

Brendan Rodgers' side have been uninspiring this season, winning just twice - their opening two fixtures, both 1-0 - and losing their previous two with an aggregate score of 6-1.

However, the Europa League provides Liverpool a platform on which they can regain form and continue to gel as a team.

"It is a huge competition (the Europa League)," Lallana continued.

"It is a great chance to get back into he Champions League, which is where we want to be as we had a taste of it last season."
