Adam Lallana says that he is looking to learn from Steven Gerrard after completing his long-awaited switch to Liverpool from Southampton.
The 26-year-old sealed his £25m switch to Anfield earlier this week fresh from a disappointing summer with England.
Lallana managed two substitute appearances and one start in the Three Lions’ three World Cup games, in which time he shared on-field minutes with Reds captain Gerrard.
The 34-year-old England and Liverpool skipper is widely seen as one of the greatest midfield players to have ever played in the Premier League, and the Kop newbie says that he wants to learn all he can from the veteran star:
“There is no limit to what I can learn playing with him. For me to be playing alongside him is quite surreal,” added the midfielder.” He is quoted by the London Evening Standard.
“He has that aura around him but I need to get used to it because I will be playing with him week in, week out.
“He is still such a good player and can go on to play for a numerous amount of years with the quality he possesses.”
Lallana became Liverpool’s third summer signing, following Rickie Lambert’s arrival from Southampton to Merseyside and German youngster Emre Can’s switch from Bayer Leverkusen.
