Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam spent one hugely underwhelming season at Liverpool after he impressed with newly promoted Blackpool.

The Reds spent £6.75m on the Scottish international in 2011 and he was a regular in the first time as Liverpool finished the season 8th.

He was sold to Stoke City in the summer of 2012 for £4m and has been part of their first team, largely under Mark Hughes, ever since.

"I am absolutely delighted to be here," Adam told upon signing in 2011.

"It has been a long process but now I can't wait to get started and hopefully this will be a successful period in my career and in the club's history."

He added: "Liverpool is a massive club with terrific players and a terrific manager.

Liverpool FC present new signings Charlie Adam, Alexander Doni, Stewart Downing, and Jordan Henderson.

"I see this as the perfect development for me to come here, play with such wonderful players and hopefully help the team to win trophies, because that's the most important thing.

Adam did win the only major trophy of his career that season, missing a penalty in the League Cup shoot-out victory over Cardiff City.

On Monday night, Steven Gerrard was honoured by various former Liverpool teammates at the Legends of Football event.

Liverpool legends Jamie Carragher, Sami Hyypia and Xabi Alonso all came to see Gerrard receive the award at the charity event.

What Carragher said to Gerrard about Adam

Now a respected pundit on Sky Sports, Carragher was given the mic and shared a brilliant story about when Kenny Dalglish signed Adam.

ESPN correspondent Liam Twomey was in attendance and shared Carragher's story on Twitter.

It's crazy to think a player of Gerrard's ability was worried that he could lose his place in Liverpool's starting XI - and to Charlie Adam!

The club legend left the Reds for MLS club LA Galaxy in 2015 but returned to Anfield as a youth coach earlier in 2017.


Gerrard is also a pundit on BT Sport and last night joined the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Pele and David Beckham to win the Legend of Football award.
