Hopefully that’s just for the time being. I know a lot of people seem to rate him but IMO he is about 2 years behind where we actually are. He made what, 10 bit part appearances and impressed in about 1 or 2 of them?. He’s fast approaching 31 and going into the final year of contract. I don’t see where he fits into our midfield because we have Hendo, Gini, Milner, Ox, Fab and Keita. The attack we have the obvious 3 and then Origi, Brewster and Shaqiri. Apart from Brewster who we know little of, Lallana isn’t at the level of any of them players.
If he stays then he will spend yet another season being injured more often than not and in a years time we will be seeing him leave on a free. We’ve already lost Can and now Sturridge and Moreno on a free so let’s not add to it for a player who is pretty much 8th/9th choice at the club.
Can’t fault his attitude for wanting to stay but he just isn’t at our level now.
