Former England and Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson are surprised that Adam Lallana signed for Brighton & Hove Albion this week – having been linked with a move to Leicester City. Lallana was available on a free transfer after his contract at Liverpool expired.
Paul Robinson said “I was surprised he did not go to Leicester, Lallana is a fantastic player. He has been frustrated by his lack of first team opportunities and at his age you want to play football. The way that Brighton play suits him. Tidy football that can allow him to make his forward runs. I saw the Leicester move happening because of the link with Brendan Rodgers and his form under Rodgers when he played under him. At the same time you can see why the Brighton move has come off – a great place to live and a football club that plays the way he likes. He will be a key player to Graham Potter’s plans next season. I can’t wait to get started. It’s a breath of fresh air coming here – having my medical, everything is new. It’s a challenge I am looking forward to. The whole infrastructure and ambition around the club excites me. There is so much young talent and so much ability. The manager is highly regarded and it was a pretty easy choice for me in the end, especially knowing how much Brighton have reached out. It’s nice to know that you’re wanted – I think it’s a perfect match.”
