Adam keen to prove himself at Liverpool under Rodgers
Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam hopes to prove to his new manager Brendan Rodgers that he should have a future at Anfield, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Adam was signed by Rodgers’ predecessor Kenny Dalglish last summer and the Telegraph claims the two Scots shared a close bond. But Adam acknowledged he must start afresh with Rodgers, insisting that he was looking forward to working under the former Swansea City manager.
Rodgers however has attempted to re-shape the Liverpool midfielder already, with his well-documented and ultimately unsuccessful pursuit of Gylfi Sigurdsson, while the Telegraph notes Rodgers has also confirmed an interest in Swansea midfielder Joe Allen. Any move for Allen is complicated however by the one-year moratorium on Liverpool signing Swansea players following Rodgers’ move from the Liberty Stadium. The Reds can only bid for a Swansea player if the Swans accept an offer from another club first.
Adam insisted that he is not concerned about his future at the club, stressing he was more focused on returning from injury than anything else. He said: “For me it’s about getting fit and being available for him and giving him the options. I don’t see my future away from Liverpool.”
