Charlie Adam out to impress Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam has stated that he is motivated to show new boss Brendan Rodgers that he has a future at the club.

The Northern Irish manager replaced Kenny Dalglish in the Anfield hotseat this summer, with Andy Carroll already being stated as a player who can leave Merseyside.

With question marks over the heads of a number of other players, the Scotland international is out to prove his worth.

“Criticism is part of the game. That is what happens, but as a group of players it was not about the seven or eight who Kenny Dalglish signed but the 25 players who were there at the time,” Adam is quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

“You win or lose as a group. People get criticised but that’s how football is and you move on from that. If we learn from last season we’ll be a better side.

“When the manager who brings you in leaves the club it is tough. It’s difficult. That’s the way it goes. Kenny Dalglish is a living legend at this club who can walk back through the door at any time, so although it was disappointing, he was the right man at the right time to take the club forward.

“Now you’ve got to look to the future. We have a new manager in charge with different ideas of how to play and we want to go in a good direction. This is one of the biggest clubs in the world, so for Brendan to come here and get us playing in the style he wants is something to look forward to.

“When you bring in your own ideas there is a freshness and a buzz. It takes time and miracles don’t happen overnight, but we’ll look to put his ideas into practice. Hopefully the warm-up games will show we’ve taken on board what he has said in the first three weeks he has been here.

“For me it’s about getting fit and being available for him and giving him the options. I don’t see my future away from Liverpool,” he concluded.
