After losing their third consecutive Premier League, Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has called on his team to fight to stay in the Champions League ahead of their Wednesday clash against Ludogorets, reports Sky
“We need to stick together. When you’re having a tough time as a team, you all need to stay together – you can’t start becoming individuals. We win and lose as a team; we need to stay together, keep fighting and keep working for each other. We have got a tough game on Wednesday so we all need to be together for that one,” he said.
Liverpool are on the brink of Champions League elimination, with the Reds three points adrift of qualification into the last-16. Only a win will do against Ludogorets this week, and they need Real Madrid to beat Basel to stand a chance of going through. Liverpool then face Basel in the last group game, and a win against Ludogorets will ensure their future is in their hands ahead of the meeting against the Swiss side in December.
“We need to win to stay in the competition, so the lads will be fighting for their lives to do that. It’s important, not just for ourselves, but for the fans, the manager and everyone involved with Liverpool Football Club,” Lallana added.
