Adam Lallana has confirmed that he will stay at Liverpool beyond this summer and supporters cannot understand why.

The Englishman played just 569 minutes all season, contributing to just one goal and generally lowering the quality around him when included.

It’s quite cruel how the 31-year-old’s career has turned out but Liverpool fans had hoped that Jurgen Klopp would be ruthless in the transfer market this summer but it seems unlikely now.

Simon Peach quotes Adam Lallana as saying that he will unquestionably stay at Anfield beyond this summer.

He said: “The gaffer, his staff and the recruitment guys have all made it clear they know I have a big part to play with what’s to come next, so I’m buzzing with that. No question my future is here and I can’t wait for what’s next.”

Lallana is understandably over the moon but Liverpool fans, on the other hand, are baffled.

Lallana has started just nine games in the last two years and is not a good option off the bench let alone from the beginning of the game.

With a year remaining on his contract, the best thing for Liverpool would be to sell the Englishman and recoup a small fee and replace him with a younger more capable star.
