#PremierLeagueStories – #AdamLallana Compares Brighton’s Development Process with Liverpool #BHAFC

Adam Lallana

Brighton’s new signing Adam Lallana has compared Albion’s “development process” with that of his former club Liverpool. The midfielder said he was excited to be a part of the Seagulls’ ongoing progress and was full of praise for the club’s footballing philosophy.

Adam Lallana said “In terms of a way of playing, they want to handle the ball, control play and dominate possession – they are some of my strengths. It excites me to play like that, but you can’t just rely on it. You have to be prepared to win tackles and win the ball back as well. If you get the right mix by being successful both with and without the ball then that’s a formula to do well. If you play well more often than you don’t, you’ll win matches by doing the right things. It’s a project and it takes time to build. I saw it at Liverpool where we won the league in [Jurgen Klopp’s] fifth year, it’s a phase-by-phase development process. You might not get results overnight, but if you stick to it then you’ll be working towards something and that’s what I can sense we’re going to do here at Brighton. I’m sure there’s so much more I can learn under the head coach, which is the same for all the players here, You’re never too old to learn – that’s the beauty of football, you can always improve. Everyone else is trying to do the same thing so it’s important that as a team we keep showing signs of progress. That doesn’t happen overnight, which is why the head coach has done such a fantastic job in terms of making that change to the playing philosophy and keeping Brighton in the league. It’s going to be difficult because the league is so competitive but Brighton have got top players. I’ve made that transition early in my career where we went through League One and the Championship, like Brighton did. We went from loitering around relegation and then Mauricio coming in and just tweaking the mentality and the belief. We finished eighth and I think that is definitely possible at Brighton. All the signs are right.”
