Lallana: I’ll keep working hard

first_img “Hopefully I can settle in quickly and I’ll give it my best and hope I can add something to the team. “Hopefully we can win trophies because that is why I am here – for success.” Manager Brendan Rodgers believes Lallana is a “special commodity” who will be much more than just another addition to squad numbers. “He has leadership skills and personal qualities that make him a special commodity and I am delighted we have acted decisively to make sure he is wearing a Liverpool shirt next season,” he said. “Adam is motivated by being the best he can be and being part of something special. “We believe he fits right in with what we are trying to do at Liverpool.” “I just have to keep working harder,” he told LFCTV GO. “We did suffer disappointments at the World Cup but we need to rest for a couple of weeks, recharge the batteries and then get back to doing what we love which is playing football. “Hopefully we can learn something from the experience and take it into the European Championship (qualifying) campaign. “I think you can only become stronger mentally. It is a long way from home in different conditions, a lot of people’s first major tournament, and we just have to learn quickly and improve and get better results next time.” Lallana played alongside Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in Brazil and will now be doing so on a regular basis for his new team. “There is no limit to what I can learn playing with him. For me to be playing alongside him is quite surreal,” added the midfielder. “He has that aura around him but I need to get used to it because I will be playing with him week in, week out. “He is still such a good player and can go on to play for a numerous amount of years with the quality he possesses. Press Association The 26-year-old’s £25million move to Anfield from Southampton was completed quickly following the national team’s early exit from the tournament in Brazil, where they were eliminated after just two matches. Lallana, who made one start and two substitute appearances in his first World Cup, expects the chastening experience to benefit him and other members of that squad in the future. New Liverpool signing Adam Lallana believes England’s World Cup failure will make him mentally tougher. last_img read more

BORDER BATTLE: UW to take on Golden Gophers

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoWith hopes to solidify its NCAA Tournament r?sum? and avenge a home loss to their longtime rivals, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team heads to Minnesota to take on the Golden Gophers at The Barn tonight.The teams’ last match turned from a Badger blowout to a classic Border Battle contest, as the Golden Gophers came back from a 14-point second half deficit to beat the Badgers at the Kohl Center in overtime, 78-74.At that time, Minnesota was the 17th-ranked team in the country , sitting at 16-1, an unprecedented start for a program UM head coach Tubby Smith has overturned over the past two seasons.“It was a very tough loss for us,” UW guard Jason Bohannon said. “Looking back on it, we had a [nine]-point lead or something with a couple minutes to go and you know, anytime we let a team get on a run like that and get back in the game with that much time remaining, it’s tough.”Now, however, the two teams have switched positions. The first match Jan. 15 was the second of six straight losses for the Badgers. But with a big 60-55 win over Michigan on Sunday, the Badgers have picked up their game to win six of their last seven contests.“Obviously, we learned from it,” Wisconsin forward Joe Krabbenhoft said. “We know how Minnesota wants to play and figured out Tubby Smith defensively, and we learned how we need to take care of the ball. They came from [14 points] down with a couple minutes to go; we just got to take care of the ball.”In that game, Minnesota’s Lawrence Westbrook picked apart the Wisconsin defense, scoring 29 points, including a game-tying 3-pointer that sent the game into overtime. While the Badgers will need to focus on Westbrook, the Gophers also have several other players capable of having big games.“They’ve got a lot of weapons,” UW assistant coach Gary Close said. “I mean [Westbrook] was the one that night, but they’ve got a lot of different weapons — that’s why they’re good. He was the guy the other night, but that’s not to say it couldn’t be someone else; there are a lot of guys we’ve got to guard.”“He had a big stretch those last couple of minutes and overtime,” Bohannon added. “He’s another player out there; we’re not going to treat him any different from what we do, our same principles and stuff, and we just got to contain him like we do with every single player on the floor.”The Badgers have good reason to be confident with their defense as of late. Against Michigan, they held the Big Ten’s leading scorer — Manny Harris — to 5-of-14 shooting and only 1-for-6 from 3-point range.“It’s going to be the same principles we use against Manny,” Krabbenhoft said. “Just go out there and stick to him. It usually works when we stick to him and do things the right way. The players are going to make plays — that’s just part of the game. You just keep playing and try to get it back on the other end of the court.”Now, though, while much of the focus is placed on both teams hoping to receive NCAA Tournament bids, the players are not so concerned with the Border Battle mentality. Instead, they are looking to take the rivalry and motivate it to boost their tournament r?sum?.“We’re just taking it one game at a time, trying to build our r?sum?,” Bohannon said. “We got to go in there and get a win; it’s going to be a tough environment. Each possession is going to matter. We can’t take one possession off because that could mean the game. That one possession made the difference last game.”Furthermore, the team continues to downplay the rivalry, especially with such a tough schedule. While they know the Gophers will come out particularly amped for the Border Battle, according to Bohannon, the Badgers are trying to think of it as just another tough conference match.“It’s a great rivalry, but you know it’s another game, another Big Ten game,” Bohannon said. “They just happen to be next on our schedule. We’ve got to come ready to play, it should be a good game for us.”As for playing in The Barn, the players are not too concerned with how to react to the Gopher fans. Regardless, they are expecting the worst, especially in a rivalry game.“That’s a terrific home environment, but hopefully we’ll do the things we need to do to keep our advantage, but any time you go on the road that could be a factor,” Close said.“The crowd’s going to sound a little different, the arena’s going to look a little different, but we just go out there and play,” Krabbenhoft added. “We’re just going to treat it like we have the others and go out there and play the same ball we’ve been playing.”last_img read more
