Lallana hails Clyne signing

AFC Cup 2019: Hà Nội FC 3-2 Altyn Asyr FK (Nguyễn Văn Quyết Penalty 87′)

The England right-back became the Reds’ sixth signing of the summer when he??completed the??move from Southampton.

“It???s a great signing for us,” Lallana told Sky Sports HQ.

“We???ll look to improve on last year ??? it was obviously disappointing but we???ll look forward to get going again.”

Clyne made his England debut last November and is expected to be the replacement for Glen Johnson at both club and international level.??

The 24-year-old said he was focused on winning silverware while at Anfield and Lallana believes the signing has been a “coup” for Liverpool.

“To manage to persuade him to sign for Liverpool – as I’m sure there would have been other top clubs, and even European clubs interested in him – is a great coup for us,” Lallana told liverpoolfc.com.

“He’s as solid as they come for a right-back and getting forward, he’s got goals in his locker.

“In one versus one situations defensively, he’s the kind of full-back you just don’t want to come up against.”

The Liverpool midfielder is also impressed by the moves the club have already made in readiness for the start of pre-season next week.

“The signings so far have been tremendous,” he said.

“There’s (Roberto) Firmino, (James) Milner, (Danny) Ings and now Clyne, as well as (Adam) Bogdan and (Joe) Gomez.

“It’s a great variety and added to what we’ve already got, hopefully it can be a good combination for success.”
