Adam Lallana has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to Brendan Rodgers, the man who brought him to Anfield, after the Northern Irish coach was sacked by Liverpool on Sunday.

Rodgers signed Lallana for £25 million from Southampton in July 2014 - but the England international has endured a tough start to life at Anfield, scoring eight goals in 47 appearances for the Merseyside outfit.

Perhaps feeling like he was partly responsible for Rodgers’ downfall at Liverpool, the technically-gifted playmaker posted on Instagram shortly after news broke that Fenway Sports Group had begun the search for a replacement manager.

Lallana posted a photo of himself and Rodgers shaking hands, alongside the caption: “Thank you Brendan for bringing me to such a fantastic club. Also helping me fit in when I first arrivedđź”´đź”´Good luck #LFC #YNWA”.

The 27-year-old was just one of a host of big-name signings who failed to flourish at Liverpool after Rodgers brought them to Anfield.

Lallana can resurrect career under a new coach

Now the likes of Christian Benteke, Dejan Lovren, Joe Allen and Lallana himself will be wondering if they still have a future with the Reds. That will ultimately depend on who FSG bring in to replace Rodgers.

Former Borussia Dortmund head coach Jurgen Klopp is the current red-hot favourite to take the Liverpool job, although ex-Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and current Ajax manager Frank de Boer are also in the frame.

Lallana certainly has the quality to succeed at Liverpool, and perhaps a change in management will help bring the best out of him and his fellow teammates following a disappointing start to the season.
