Jürgen Klopp today responded to news of Adam Lallana’s new long-term Liverpool contract by declaring the midfielder’s best years are still firmly ahead of him.
The Reds announced on Wednesday morning the 28-year-old had committed his future to the club by penning fresh terms at Melwood.
It’s a deal that has delighted Klopp, who feels Lallana not only sets the perfect example with his desire and passion on the pitch, but also his professionalism and work ethic off it each day.
The manager told Liverpoolfc.com: “This is fantastic news for the club because Adam is a great player and an even better person. I am so pleased that we will spend more time together now and have this common future with LFC trying to be successful here.
