In order to get more first team playing opportunities, after six seasons in Liverpool, Lallana moved to Brighton this summer. Recently, Lallana recalled the details of his conversation with Klopp in an interview with BBC Radio.
Lallana said: "I had an open and honest conversation with Klopp in October last year. The relationship between the two of us is very good, so I directly asked him:'What are your plans for me next year?' Because I know me. His contract is about to expire, and there are not many opportunities to play."
"At that time he told me:'You are still in my plan, and I will continue to use you, but you can arrange for an agent to start looking for the next home.' Four days later, he took me to Old Trafford, Also scored in that game. I think Klopp can be seen in this matter, he is very sincere to me."
"He told me that I deserved more playing time, but he couldn't give it. So, I got permission from him and the club to talk to other clubs about where to go next season."
