Jurgen Klopp has stated that Adam Lallana still has a role to play at the club, despite his scarce appearances due to injuries.
The 30-year-old midfielder managed only three starts throughout last season and has started that same number of games this season.
Lallana was absent for Liverpool’s FA Cup loss to Wolves, due to injury, but he could become available later this month.
“It’s brilliant to have him around as he can cool games down, he can be creative between the lines, he still has speed and all these things,” he said, via the Liverpool Echo.
“It’s not cool to lose him in a session, we didn’t have many training injuries this season. He stretched to get the ball and it happened. Nothing else to say about it.
“Could he be in a better place mentally? Yes, if he was playing and had scored 20 goals in the last 10 games.
“But everything is fine. Adam knows that we need him.”
