Adam Lallana described his decision to leave for Brighton in 2014, describing the Seagulls as “the perfect fit.”
Lallana finished his six-year stint at Anfield last week, capping his tenure with the Premier League championship on Merseyside.
The 32-year-old has joined Brighton on a three-year contract, which will potentially help them build on Graham Potter ‘s 15th-place finish of this season.
Lallana says he decided to go beyond his comfort zone somewhere and Brighton blends in with the bill.
“I don’t think I’m ever in my comfort zone for me in my life now if you know me as a guy,” Lallana told talkSPORT.
“I still try to move and to better myself. One thing I’ve noticed in the last year is there’s no limit to what you want to achieve. You will still make yourself better every day. I’ve seen the world’s best players who live with that mindset. It may be seen by many as a bold move, but I see it as a very measured but ideal move. The blend in perfectly. It’s going to go down as a major signing for Brighton but I don’t see it that way. I see it as a big step to come to a great club with tremendous expectations for myself. I look forward to being a part of a fantastic journey ahead.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was also asked about his heartfelt tribute to Lallana. As he spoke about Henderson he welled up after Liverpool won the league title, claiming that no one deserved more success than his skipper.
