Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists injury-prone Adam Lallana still has a role to play for the Anfield side despite his fitness issues.

The England international has suffered injury woes at Anfield as he only made 3 starts in all competitions last season and same number this season.

Amid speculation of a possible exit, Manager Jurgen Klopp has now come out to dismiss such adding that the player still has a role to play for his side.

“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 as obtained by FourFourTwo.

“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.”
