CAPE TOWN – In a bid to be fit again for a possible Champions League final and the Fifa World Cup, Liverpool star Adam Lallana has travelled to Cape Town to receive treatment for his hamstring injury.
The Liverpool Echo reports that Lallana is being looked after by the world-renowned Sports Science Institute in Newlands.
Lallana picked up the injury in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on March 31, and there are fears that he won’t be ready in time for the England squad ahead of the World Cup in Russia in June.
A number of injuries this season have resulted in Lallana making only three starts for Jurgen Klopp’s team.
“It will be close for Adam to come back,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the Echo last week.
“There is no rush, it makes no sense. I don’t want to close the door for the season. How can I?”
Lallana took to Instagram on Tuesday, captioning a picture of him training on a football pitch with the words “All to play for”.
Good Hope FM DJ Nigel Pierce – who is known to be a big Manchester United fan – also posted a photo of himself with Lallana at the Sports Science Institute.
