Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to express their frustration at the news that Adam Lallana is set to stay at the club, according to quotes from the player himself as provided by journalist Simon Peach.
The 30-year-old endured an injury hit 2018/19 campaign as Liverpool managed to win the Champions League, their sixth major European Cup.

As a result, the news that the former Southampton man looks set to stay at the club next season hasn’t gone down too well with the Liverpool supporters, with some under the impression that the attacking midfielder simply doesn’t pull his weight at the club.
And understandably so.
Given the fact that the Reds have just won the Champions League, they should be able to lure some top players to Anfield with their reputation as European champions, so clinging onto deadwood such as Lallana seems fairly underwhelming in all honesty.
Let’s see how the Liverpool fans reacted to the news…
Biggest waste of wages we have. Rarely fit and even rarer the occasions he's good enough

The team has moved on from what Lallana can bring to it.

@DaveHendrick_ are you buying this? If true, this news is the exact opposite of announcing Fabinho to ease off Kiev’s disappointment.

The only big part he has to play with what comes next is polishing the trophies the other players win ?
