“I’ve got a little bit more of a life back”

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Adam Lallana said leaving Liverpool two years ago helped him enjoy his private life and claimed he enjoyed his time in North West England.

Lallana, who joined Brighton on a free transfer in the summer of 2020, has been an integral part of the Reds’ squad for his first three seasons at Anfield. However, his importance at the club has diminished over the years due to injuries. Overall, he recorded 22 goals and 22 assists in 178 games in all competitions over six seasons for the Merseyside side.

The 34-year-old helped Liverpool lift four trophies including the Premier League title and the UEFA Champions League trophy.

Speaking to YouTube channel Gaz’s Golf, Lallana recalled his time with Jurgen Klopp’s team. He said:

“There is training [in the] afternoons most days, while in Brighton we always have the afternoons because we train every morning. In Liverpool, training could take place at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. depending on the time of the game. That’s how Jurgen works. I think it’s not that much [now]but when he first came in, that was his role model.”

He continued:

“In the morning you would wait, you would drop the kids off, go to breakfast, you couldn’t play golf before you practice. There would have been an element of [not wanting players to play golf]because playing for Liverpool is literally your life.”

“Having left Liverpool I feel like I’ve got a little bit more life back. Not that I didn’t enjoy it, I loved it then and I love it now in Brighton for various reasons.”

Lallana has played in 56 games for the Seagulls, scoring one goal. He is expected to be on the bench for his club’s 2022/23 Premier League opener against Manchester United on August 7.

Leicester, Tottenham and Everton were all linked with Adam Lallana 🆓 So why Brighton? 🤔

Jurgen Klopp comments on ex-Liverpool player Adam Lallana

Speaking to reporters ahead of the Reds’ 2-2 draw with Brighton Hove & Albion last season, Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp praised former player Adam Lallana. He said (via Football365):

“I still miss Adam to be honest. Adam set quite the standard from day one to the last and it was really impressive. What I loved about him is a footballer with the technical ability he has and this work mentality is really rare.”

He added:

“I think we can all agree that if Adam had been a little less injured he could have been at a different level. One of the best players I’ve ever worked with and also an absolutely incredible person.”
