Adam Lallana has revealed that he felt excited after watching Jurgen Klopp’s first press conference as Liverpool manager last Friday.

The former Southampton star is relishing the prospect of working under the revered German coach after the international break and, like almost every other Liverpool fan, was impressed with the former Borussia Dortmund manager’s opening press conference.

“I’m very excited to work with him,” Lallana was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. “I saw the press conference and the reaction he was getting and like everybody who was there I think it’s going to be an exciting time. He came across very well. It was a good press conference. I’ve got one more game with England to worry about first, but I’ll be excited to get back to the club afterwards.”

Lallana admits he was sad to see Brendan Rodgers, the man who brought him to Anfield in the summer of 2014, leave the club last week. However, he is now looking forward to working under Klopp - and hopes to secure all three points against Tottenham at White Hart Lane this weekend.

“I’m sure there are a few new things going on. I’m really looking forward to the week and the game at the end of it, and trying to get three points against Tottenham on Saturday,” the playmaker added. “It was disappointing to see Brendan go after our indifferent start, but change happens in football.”

Lallana admits last year was frustrating

Lallana, who cost Liverpool £25 million, flattered to deceive in his debut campaign at Anfield. The 27-year-old scored six goals in 41 appearances as the Reds finished the season sixth in the Premier League table - just two points above his former employers, Southampton.

“Last year was frustrating,” the England international admitted. “Even the beginning for this season has been frustrating, picking up another injury.

“I’ve found myself not playing, but there’s the Europa League and the League Cup. I am working really hard to keep fit because if I stay fit the club will see the best of me.”

Is Adam Lallana good enough?

Perhaps Klopp can help bring the best out of Lallana, who admits this campaign is a “big season” for him, and make that £25 million transfer fee look good value for money.

It will be fascinating to see if Klopp names the technically-gifted Englishman in his starting line-up on Saturday.
