Adam Lallana is one of the few English players capable of manipulating the ball in tight areas, according to Phil Neville.
The Liverpool FC midfielder is on the brink of a return to the Reds first-team following a prolonged spell on the sidelines.
Indeed, Lallana hasn’t featured for Liverpool FC in the Premier League this season following a knee injury during their pre-season.
The 29-year-old played a key role in helping Jurgen Klopp’s side to secure a top-four spot last term with eight goals and seven assists.
Lallana is facing increased competition from Liverpool FC summer signing Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a starting spot.
Former Manchester United defender Neville explained what Lallana will bring to the Liverpool FC team upon his return to first-team action.
“He gives the team flexibility and movement. He takes the ball in tight areas and can manipulate the movement of the ball,” Neville told BBC Radio 5 Live.
Lallana moved to Liverpool FC in a £25m deal from Southampton in the 2014 summer transfer window under Brendan Rodgers’ reign.
However, the former Southampton captain has become a firm favourite of Liverpool’s current boss Jurgen Klopp.
